Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to put together by year-end a comprehensive national security strategy that embodies Japan’s basic defense and foreign policies, government officials revealed Saturday.

Abe will entrust a panel of experts by mid-September with compiling recommendations on the strategy, which will cover not only defense but also energy, maritime, space, food and cultural issues, the officials said.
