FILE - In this March 20, 2014 file photo, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe speaks during a press conference at his official residence in Tokyo. Japan is marking the 67th anniversary of its postwar constitution on May 3, 2014 with growing debate over whether to revise the war-renouncing document as Abe pushes for an expanded role for the military. Abe’s ruling conservative party has long advocated revision but been unable to sway public opinion. Now he proposes that the government reinterpret the constitution so it can loosen the reins on its military without having to win approval for constitutional change. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayash, File)
