Japan has come up with a final draft for a reinterpretation of its pacifist constitution.
That paves the way for reaching a consensus on the change, which Kyodo News Agency says could come as soon as July 1st.
The draft says Japan will ensure that its history as a pacifist state continues, while adhering to is non-nuclear principles and pursuing robust diplomacy to stem the emergency of threats.
Japan has long maintained that it has the right to collective self-defense under international law, but cannot exercise it under Article 9 of its constitution, which bans the use of force to settle international disputes and only allows "the minimum" for self-defense.
