U.S. President Joe Biden said he supports Japan becoming a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Reuters reported on Monday (May 23).
Calls have been rising recently for reform of the U.N. Security Council, where both Russia and China are permanent members.
In 1998, Japan’s total GDP was $3.8319 trillion, and its share of global GDP amounted to 13.4%. Japan is also the world’s largest donor of official development assistance.
So, what is Japan’s stance on becoming a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council?
Cooperation with the United Nations has been a cornerstone of Japan’s foreign policy since it joined the United Nations in 1956, the Japanese foreign ministry said. Japan has the world’s second-largest economy, and based on this national strength, it has the capacity to assume ever greater global responsibilities as a permanent member of the UNSC.
After World War II, Japan renounced the right to use force to resolve disputes with other countries according to Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. Also, Japan has banned from recruiting troops after war II, so Japan does not have a national army. However, Japan’s Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) are actually functionally equivalent to other countries’ military, except for legal and budgetary constraints.
Mr. Miles Guo said on Gettr broadcast on May 23 that once Japan becomes a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, the global landscape will change significantly.
It can be expected that once Japan becomes a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, Japan will return to the stage of history and will inevitably play an important role on the road to eliminating the CCP, which is undoubtedly a nightmare for the CCP.
