 Japanese media said Japans defense relations with Southeast Asia are warming up


The reference news network reported in April 26th that Japans Kyodo news agency said in April that Malaysia and Japan signed an agreement on the 18 day to pave the way for Japan to transfer defense equipment and technology to the Southeast Asian countries. Japanese ambassador to Malaysia Miyakawa Makio told Japanese media after the signing ceremony that the new agreement will establish a security cooperation relationship between the two countries. The signing ceremony was held at the interval of a regional security forum and exhibition. It is reported that the agreement stipulates the procedures for transfer and the provisions for the use of defense equipment and technology. Miyakawa said Malaysia is interested in buying Japanese reconnaissance planes, ships, radar, satellites and communications equipment, as well as other hardware. In May 2015, Malaysias prime minister Naguib and Japanese Prime Minister Abe agreed to start negotiations on a defense equipment and technology transfer agreement in the field of maritime safety and disaster relief, the report said. Reports say Malaysia is the second country in ASEAN to reach such an agreement with Japan. A similar agreement was reached between Philippines and Japan in February 2016. According to the agreement, Japan will transfer the 5 trainers used by the Japanese maritime self defense force to the Philippines Navy.
