1. The Ministry of Defense and the Self-Defense Forces are trying to strengthen their stand-off defense capabilities to prevent and eliminate invasion units to our country early and far. In light of the more stringent security environment, Minister Kihara was instructed to further advance the construction of stand-off defense capabilities.

2. We are receiving this and are looking at domestic stand-off missiles for earlier acquisition.

3. We also negotiated a complementary Tomahawk with the US side as soon as possible to get it. As a result, we acquired the block Ⅴ in 2026 and 2027, but changed a portion of the block Ⅴ to the block Ⅳ to get the Tomahawk from 2025 one year earlier than originally planned. I decided to get it. Parliamentary approval procedures will be taken in the US Government.
