久間 章生(きゅうま ふみお、1940年12月4日 - )は、日本の元農林官僚である政治家。長崎県議会議員、衆議院議員防衛庁長官(第59・73代)、防衛大臣(初代)などを歴任した。











頭は切れるという評判がある。郵政国会下では総務会長権限による多数決採決という強権発動による党議拘束の口実で、郵政解散と小泉劇場の下地を整えた。また参議院与党劣勢下の野党に強権による証人喚問がしやすい情勢下でねじれ国会下で発覚した山田洋行事件では逮捕された宮﨑元伸から接待を受けた守屋武昌防衛事務次官が 証人喚問で「接待の場に久間氏と額賀氏が同席」と答弁された際には、自らは外遊の予定を直前でキャンセルして「解離性大動脈瘤」の大手術として病院に入院 して証人喚問を受けにくくする一方で現役閣僚で身動きが取れなかった額賀のみに嫌疑の批判を大きく集中する構図となり相対的に自身への嫌疑を少なくさせ た。









Fumio Kyūma (久間 章生 Kyūma Fumio, born 4 December 1940) is a Japanese politician who has served in the Diet of Japan since 1980. Kyuma graduated from the University of Tokyo in 1964 and worked for the Ministry of Agriculture. He was elected to the Nagasaki Prefectural Assembly in 1971 serving three terms before being elected to the Diet as a member of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) for Nagasaki Number 2.


Kyūma served as the Minister for Defense from 1996 to 1998 under then Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto. He served in a variety of LDP posts in Jun'ichirō Koizumi's cabinet. He again became responsible for defence in September 2006.


In January 2007 he criticized the United States over not getting the approval of Okinawa's governor during efforts to relocate the Marine Corps Air Station Futenma. The base and its relocation has been a source of friction between the residents of Okinawa and the U.S. government.


Kyūma resigned as Defense Minister on 3 July 2007 for remarks made at Reitaku University in Kashiwa, Chiba Prefecture on 30 June. In this speech, he stated "I now have come to accept in my mind that in order to end the war, it could not be helped that an atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki and that countless numbers of people suffered great tragedy." He appeared on a Fuji TV morning news show on 1 July, saying he did not think an apology would be necessary, but he apologized later the same day. When this would not calm the critics, Kyūma finally submitted his resignation on 3 July. Asked about the reason for his resignation, Kyūma is quoted as saying that he did not want his comments to become a "minus" for the Prime Minister. Yuriko Koike was appointed his successor the same day.
