DM Inada says SDF to hold exercise for rescue of foreign troops starting Aug. 25

NTV reported at noon that Defense Minister Inada announced this morning that the SDF will hold an exercise for the rescue of foreign troops and defense of SDF camps overseas in cooperation with foreign troops starting on Aug. 25 based on the new security legislation that took effect in March. The network said the exercise, the first of its kind, will be carried out by SDF troops to be deployed to a PKO mission in South Sudan in November. Asked whether the SDF troops will be ordered to actually perform the new mission, Inada said that she will carefully examine the possibility. NHK, TBS, and TV Asahi carried similar stories.
