After election win, Japanese PM promises “dramatic countermeasures” vs NKorea

 Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s coalition won a decisive win in Sunday’s early election, which he called to obtain an extended mandate to deal with crises, after North Korea fired missiles over Japan. He pledged “strong counter-measures” against North Korea, which he would discuss with US President Donald Trump, who is visiting Japan next month, as well as with other world powers such as Russia and China.

After retaining a two-thirds majority in parliament, the way is paved for Abe to carry out his plan to amend the country’s pacifist constitution and formalize its armed forces.
