Shiozaki doth protest too much?

Yesterday I noted that Chief Cabinet Secretary Shiozaki reaffirmed the government’s commitment to the three arms export principles, saying that the three principles are “an extremely important policy.”

It seems, however, that Abe is leaning more towards Kyuma’s position than Shiozaki’s, as he said at a press conference at the Kantei yesterday, “It has been decided that henceforth, in conformity with the three principles, we will proceed prudently with an investigation.”

I don’t think we’ve heard the last of this issue.
