Mainichi and Sankei ran a Kyodo story on the visit to Djibouti by Defense Minister Inada on Aug. 15, during which she met with SDF troops engaged in the antipiracy mission in waters off Somalia. Inada expressed her intention to continue SDF involvement in the antipiracy mission in the region by saying that it is essential to steadily implement counter-piracy measures because shipping continues to be vulnerable. Yomiuri added that Inada called for Djibouti’s cooperation with SDF activities during her talks with the Djibouti president and defense minister.
