Kono Taro, who has a solid lead in polls to head Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party and succeed the outgoing Suga Yoshihide as prime minister, expressed support for building nuclear-powered submarines this week.
While being questioned alongside other candidates in a televised forum, he called the development of nuclear submarines a “very important” capability for Japan.
He added, "Whether there are regions [in Japan] willing to host them as a home port, or whether the operating capabilities or costs are pragmatic, these are issues we need to consider going forward,"
Viewers may not that the statement is issued in favor of nuclear-powered submarines and not nuclear missile-equipped ones.
