WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made the following statement.
“I am very pleased to hear that Japan will be dramatically increasing their defense capability in light of growing threats in the region. Japan has been a great ally and the upgrading of their missile systems and counterstrike capability will be a welcome addition, promoting regional security.
“The goal is to deter conflict by being so strong that no one wants to start a fight. This announcement is a major step forward on the defense front.”
