Japan Viewed as 2nd Biggest Military Threat

South Koreans chose Japan as the country that poses the second-biggest military threat following North Korea, a survey showed today. This is seen as an indication of Koreans’ discomfort with Japan’s stance on history and moves to expand the role of its military.

A total of 46.3 percent of Korean respondents selected Japan as the most threatening nation, trailing North Korea with 83.4 percent, according to the joint survey by the East Asia Institute in Seoul and Genron NPO, a Japanese think tank.

In a similar poll last year, Japan ranked third with almost 44 percent, following North Korea with about 87 percent and China with about 48 percent.
