Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reviewed troops from the country’s Ground Self-Defence Force on Saturday November 27, 2021, saying he will consider strengthening its capability. The inspection was part of the country’s annual review ceremony, which was scaled down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Kishida expressed concerns over national security, citing military build-ups in North Korea and China. On Friday, the government approved plans to add US$6.75 billion to military spending. The extra funds will be used to fast-track upgrades to air and maritime defences.
