  • Description

    A Japanese General has arrive dint he West German town of Koblenz to see military equipment and to watch tanks on manoeuvres. General Kimugasa, accompanied by West Germany's General Poschl, was met by General Georg Lemm. Japan's Self Defence Force expects to get new weapons under a five year defence build-up approved by the government in October. The force began life in 1950 as a police reserve...it now has one hundred and eighty thousand men, but some government opponents say the force is illegal because the post-war constitution bans armed forces for Japan.
