80% of Japanese support non-nuclear principles
11/21/2006
Nearly 80 percent of Japanese favor preserving the country's anti-nuclear weapons policy, a newspaper reported Tuesday, amid ongoing debate over whether Japan should re-examine its stance. Japan's Yomiuri newspaper said 79.9 percent of 1,757 respondents polled support maintaining the country's three-pronged policy of not possessing, developing or allowing the introduction of nuclear weapons on its territory. Only 17.6 percent of those asked said revising the principles was acceptable, while 2.6 percent had no response, the Yomiuri said. The poll also found that 50.9 percent of the respondents opposed the idea of debating the policy, while 45.9 percent said they would accept debate.
