 Against China?! Japanese and Australian defense chief plans to include Australian Army as protection object of self defense force


It is reported that after the talks, the defense departments of Japan and Australia will quickly start consultations on this issue. If it is achieved, this will be the first time that Japans self defense forces have included other countries troops as protection objects except the US military. Kyodo said the move was aimed at strengthening vigilance and surveillance in response to Chinas recent increased presence in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

After the talks, kishinov and Reynolds held a joint press conference on relevant contents. We will maintain and strengthen the free and open India Pacific strategy and further deepen the defense cooperation between the two countries, kishinov said at a press conference. Reynolds said: in order to expand Japan Australia defense relations, the two countries will continue to cooperate.

However, Kyodo news agency is worried about this, saying that if Japan expands the number of countries to be protected, the risk of being involved in armed conflict will be correspondingly increased.

Japan has been making constant moves on the South China Sea and East China Sea issue recently. On the morning of 19th local time, Japanese Prime Minister Kan Yiwei held talks with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Chun Fu in Hanoi, Vietnam. In addition to reaching consensus on promoting the India Pacific strategy and the defense export agreement, the two sides also exchanged views on the so-called recent strengthening of Chinas presence in the South China Sea, and confirmed that they would cooperate closely on the South China Sea issue.

Not only that, Japans Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato Shengxin also frequently involved in the Diaoyu Islands issue. He announced at a press conference on the 15th that Japans Ministry of environment planned to conduct a natural environment investigation on the Senkaku Islands (i.e. Diaoyu Islands) within this year. After Chinas Diaoyu Island digital museum was officially launched on the Diaoyu Island special website on March 3, Kato also declared at a press conference on the 5th that the Diaoyu Island is Japans inherent territory and that China has no qualification to establish a website for it.
