Japan feels sense of crisis over North Korea

In an interview, Hajime Hirota, the Japanese parliamentary vice-minister of defense, told Reuters that the attack on Yeonpyeong would lead to closer ties between South Korea, Japan, and America.

“In Japan we have a strong sense of crisis over the North Korean artillery attack on the island of Yeonpyeong,” said Hirota. “It is an act that we in Japan we cannot tolerate ... For other countries of northeast Asia, including Japan, this act is seen as a large threat.”
