China Media: Japan's Arms Exports

Japan's decision to ease its half-century old self-imposed arms export ban is a step forward in making the country a "strong military power", papers in China say.

Under the new conditions, Japan will be able to jointly develop arms with allies and give its defence industry access to new markets and technology.

In the past all military sales have effectively been banned, although there has been technology transfer to the US.
