Government must recognize and abrogate secret pacts on nuclear arms: Shii
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on March 9 published a report by a panel of experts regarding Japan-U.S. secret agreements. The published report contains serious problems in its recognition of the bilateral secret agreements on nuclear weapons. Japanese Communist Party Chair Shii Kazuo at a press conference on the same day responded to questions on this report.

Secure right to education for all children
Regarding a government-proposed bill to make high schools tuition-free now under Diet deliberation, the government mentioned the possibility of excluding Korean schools from the tuition-free program.

Unions should not support a specific political party
Everyone should be free to support a political party of their choice and vote for candidates according to their individual political beliefs. However, the largest national center of trade unions in Japan, the Japanese Trade Union Confederation (Rengo), has traditionally maintained a policy to require its member unions to support a specific political party.
