Japan lawmakers probe UFO security 'threat'

Tokyo: UFO sightings should not be dismissed as a result of a government investigation, according to Japanese lawmakers who launched a group on Thursday ( Jun 6 ) to look into the matter.

The non-partisan group, which has over 80 former defence ministers as its members, will demand that Japan increase its ability to identify and study unidentified anomalous phenomena ( UAPs ), more commonly known as UFOs.

Although the trend is frequently associated with “little natural men” in popular culture, American politics have become rife with it.

Washington announced last year that it was looking into 510 UFO reports, which is more than triple the amount in its 2021 report, and NASA announced in September that it wants to move the discussion “from sensationalism to science.”

Following a number of frightful incidents involving suspected security procedures, the Chinese parliamentarians are hoping to align the country’s perception of UAPs with its allies.

Before the release, team member and former defense minister Yasukazu Hamada said,” It is extremely careless of us to be resigned to the fact that everything is unknown, and to maintain turning a blind eye to the unnamed.”

Illegal footage of a moored helicopter destroyer just proliferated on Taiwanese social media in embarrassment for the Japanese defense ministry following an ostensible drone intrusion into a military installation.

And the government asserted last year that it” strongly assumes” that China-sent monitoring balloons were flying objects recently seen in Chinese skies.

In Japan, Creatures have long been seen as” an occult issue that has nothing to do with politicians”, opposition senator Yoshiharu Asakawa, a key member of the group, has said.

But if they turn out to be” cutting- top key weapons or spying drones in disguise, they may cause a major risk to our nation’s protection”.

The All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office ( AARO ) was established to investigate UAPs by the US Defense Department in 2022.

An AARO statement last month designated the area stretching from northern Japan to China as a “hotspot” for UAP observations, based on trends between 1996 and 2023.

In a 60-page evaluation that was ordered by Congress later came to the conclusion that there was no evidence of alien technology or that the US government had attempted to conceal it from the general public.

The Chinese lawmakers will demand that Japan develop an AARO-like structure in place of the Pentagon and to expand American-led intelligence cooperation.

Christopher Mellon, a UAP specialist and former US knowledge standard, may grant an online chat to the team on Thursday.
