On 25 August, both the Senate and House of Representatives approved the Military Disarmament Bill, introduced by President Asami Saito, who is a pacifist and has been a long time opponent of a standing army. The move has been greatly criticized by members of the Liberal Party, along with members of The Democrats. The bill will abolish the standing army and will reorganize most of the military into reserve forces.
All military officers are due to become part of the Reserve Forces of the United Republic of Tiangong. A small naval and air force will be maintained, along with a security force, mainly along the border. These changes are to be implemented before 1 January 2018. All military officers who become part of the Reserve Forces will be paid a salary until they can find a stable job or have a stable financial situation.
