Japanese PM visit

The article entitled `Japanese PM Shinzo Abe's visit to India: Growing Indo-Japanese collaboration in the economic and strategic interests of the Indian and Japanese bourgeoisie' in the January 1-15, 2015 issue of MEL was highly informative. The article is multi-dimensional and deals with international relations on the one hand, and political-economy on the other hand, and is an object lesson in the application of the science of Marxism-Leninism. In particular, it is important to draw attention to the class character of the relations rather than narrow national identities or the bourgeoisie in the analysis. Thus, the article is a must-read for all who are interested in the future of the peoples of these countries and of the peoples of the world in general.

Of special importance is the fact that this visit comes in the aftermath of one of the most important changes in post-war Constitution of Japan, which is that the law no longer prohibits Japan from participating in wars overseas, and other significant changes to the law as far as sale of military products is concerned. The relationship between the two countries reflects the confluence of the imperialist ambitions of the reactionary bourgeoisie of each of the countries, and such enhanced ties do not bode any good for the people of either country. In particular, the economic co-operation now enhances military ties, as well as ties in the nuclear industry, since there is an insatiable apetite for nuclear energy in the ranks of the Indian bourgeoisie, while there is mass opposition in many countries, and manufacturers of nuclear materials and equipment for nuclear plants are eager for markets. The relationship of each of these countries continues to fraught with contradictions with other major powers in the region as well as contention as well as collaboration with US imperialism. That being the case, this new love affair is one that is bound to only increase tensions in the region, all the time increasing the profits for the big bourgeoisie who are driving these policies.

The working class must be vigilant and not get carried away by bourgeoise propaganda about the relations between these two imperial powers.

Sincerely,

A. Narayan, Bangalore

Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no
alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation
and privatisation. The truth is thatthere IS an alternative.

The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s
needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the
program for the Navnirman of India.
