Japan embarks on dangerous path with revived constitutional change push
Protesters gather at Shiba Park in Tokyo, Japan, May 22, 2022. U.S. President Joe Biden arrived in Japan on Sunday, as about 750 protesters took to the streets here against the planned U.S.-Japan summit and the summit of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue.

Japan has embarked on a dangerous path with a series of reckless domestic and foreign policies that are seriously threatening peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific and the world. The latest move sees Japan ramping up a campaign to push for the changes to its pacifist constitution at home apart from seeking to double its defense budget.
In terms of foreign policy, Tokyo has been keen on hyping the Ukraine crisis and the so-called “China threat” to support and advocate expansion of NATO in the Asia-Pacific, while constantly provoking China on its core interests.
