Japan has hesitated to assert itself in the Indo-Pacific, a region increasingly dominated by Chinese influence. It may want to avoid its tradition 'value-oriented diplomacy' and the temptation to lock horns with China.
According to a poll conducted by the Japanese media, Abe’s supporting rate has decreased 30 percent during the examination of the treaty. The Japanese Prime Minister has no choice but to extend the parliament recession that was supposed to end on June 22 to September 27 in order to pass the treaty.
