Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for a revision of the constitution.

The founding document of the Land of the Rising Sun was developed immediately after the end of World War II. According to its text, Tokyo is not entitled to an army and navy. However, the island monarchy has both land, air and naval forces.

To justify this fact, the ninth article of the Constitution is interpreted broadly. In order to avoid discrepancies and to bring the legal side in line with the new historical realities, Shinzo Abe proposed amending the Constitution, according to which Japan receives the right to maintain self-defense forces.
