Defense of Japan 2006: Toward Assured Security for the Future
The Japanese-language edition of Defense of Japan 2006, subtitled Toward Assured Security for the Future, was issued on August 1. This year's defense report provides a detailed explanation of the Japan-U.S. security arrangements based on the final settlement concluded in May through consultations on the realignment of U.S. Forces. The report also discusses developments aimed at the eventual elevation of the Japan Defense Agency to a ministry and activities of the Self-Defense Forces in Iraq and elsewhere overseas.
