 Postponement of military exercises and refusal of warships to dock in Japan


Japanese defense officials said it was not a big problem to stop for a few months, but to stop counting by years was another matter. The Ministry is concerned about problems in maintaining containment and fostering trust.

Since March, the Ministry of defense has announced that it will postpone the first defense ministers meeting between Japan and the Pacific island countries, which was scheduled to be held in early April, and the director level consultation between Southeast Asian countries and the United States and China, the report said. According to defense officials, regular meetings with the US military in Japan and their overseas business trips basically failed..

At the force level, some joint training was called off. The GSDFs scheduled shooting match in Australia was postponed, and two SDF training ships were refused port calls by the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia. Defense Minister Taro Kono acknowledged at a press conference that defense cooperation has been affected.
