Japan considered the reason for the creation of nuclear weapons the relationship between Russia and China

Japan considered the reason for the creation of nuclear weapons the relationship between Russia and China

The US nuclear umbrella has ceased to be credible, so in light of the Russian and Chinese threats, Japan may consider building its own nuclear weapons.

It is noted that Japan is capable of creating a nuclear bomb in a few days: the country has both delivery vehicles and guidance technologies. Tokyo does not do this due to the US extended nuclear deterrence guarantee.

“Nevertheless, in light of the Chinese and Russian threat, the balance of nuclear forces is tilting against Washington,” experts say


Against the background of the Ukrainian crisis, China and Russia are developing cooperation, including in the field of advanced military technologies. It is possible that Beijing and Moscow have entered into a secret agreement in the field of nuclear strategy.


If the two countries consider the United States a common enemy, the balance of power will be two to one, Yano notes.
