Nikkei front-paged a speculative piece projecting that the U.S. and Japan are likely to revise the bilateral ACSA to reflect Japan’s comprehensive security laws. As a result, Japan will be able to offer to the U.S. military an additional range of logistical support, such as providing ammunition and refueling aircraft, even if Japan is not attacked. Arrangements are being made for FM Kishida and Ambassador Kennedy to sign the new accord in late August or early September. Tokyo is also likely to start negotiations with Canberra on renewing their bilateral ACSA.
