Tokyo: The parliament in Japan has voted to allow the nation’s military to fight overseas for the first time since the end of Second World War 70 years ago.
The president of the Upper House of the Japanese Parliament, Masaaki Yamazaki, said the bills were passed by a 148-90 vote.
A vote on the new law was delayed for several hours as the opposition tried to stop the measure coming into force.
The Japanese Government has said that changes in the nation’s defence policy are vital to meet new military challenges.
The governing coalition has a majority in both chambers of the Japanese Diet, meaning that ultimately the opposition camp was powerless to stop the measure becoming law.
