Instead of all these useless meetings allow Japan to build its own nuclear weapon.

Allow? No one is stopping them. Japan chooses to nt be a nuclear power of it's own accord.

Seems odd that this agreement didn't happen 30 yrs ago to me. What took so long? I look forward to the day when SK soldiers and Japanese soldiers are placed in each other's countries to build closer working ties. Cultures are different. Foods are different, but people about 85% the same everywhere outside dictatorships.

Technically Japan would become a violator of the NPT if it did so and so would need US and other support in the UNSC to avoid sanctions.

Yes, but that's not permission, that's just the world applying social pressure. As it stands, Japan, like every other country, is a sovereign nation and does not have to ask permission to develop nuclear weapons. NK exemplifies this.

Japan has chosen to not do so.
