Japan overturns post-war pacifism with new security laws

Tokyo: Japan on Saturday abandoned its 70-year pacifism since the end of World War II as the parliament's upper house enacted a controversial legislation pushed forward by the government under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The legislation's enactment marked an overhaul in Japan's purely defensive defence posture, meaning the country could dispatch its troops overseas to engage in armed conflicts for the first time in seven decades, Xinhua news agency reported. However, the country's war-renouncing Constitution bans its Self-Defence Forces (SDF) from doing so or exercising the right to collective self-defence.
