 Japans self defense force plans to provide weapons and other protection to the Australian Army


According to local media reports, the defense departments of Japan and Australia will discuss this issue in the future. If it can be realized, Australia will become another target country for Japans self defense forces to provide weapons and other protection in addition to the United States.

During the talks, the defense ministers of Japan and Australia also reached an agreement on aerial refueling test, joint research and development of UAVs, cooperation in aerospace and network fields, and exchange of military personnel, and said that they would continue to consult on the agreement on the status of forces to visit.

In 2016, the Japanese government adopted the weapons and other protection application guidelines, allowing the self defense forces to use weapons to protect the U.S. Army and other countries that contribute to Japans defense activities under the gray area situation of not being able to attack by force.

According to Japanese media reports, from 2017 to 2019, the Japanese self defense force provided 32 weapons and other protection to the US military. Japanese media also pointed out that expanding the target country of weapons and other protection may increase the risk of Japans involvement in armed conflict.
