Japan's Election

"New Japanese Government Heralds Changes for Korea"

Conservative Chosun Ilbo editorialized (09/02): "The Democratic
Party of Japan's emphasis on Asia should be seen as related to
China's sudden rise to power. In a few years, China will overtake
Japan in terms of economic size. ... If China and Japan once again
engaged in a hegemonic struggle in Asia, it would have direct
repercussions for the Korean Peninsula. ... Japan's move to end its
dependence on the U.S. and to carry out an independent Asia strategy
may lead to the country's rearmament and a revival of Japanese
militarism. We are dependent on China for exports and on Japan for
technology. The launch of a new Japanese administration is a signal
that Korea must waste no time in defining its mid-and long-term
national strategies."
