Saturday morning’s Mainichi led with a speculative report claiming that the GOJ is inclined to make an official decision on Nov. 11 on allowing South Sudan-bound SDF personnel to go to the defense of foreign troops and aid workers in the event that they come under attack. Defense Minister Inada, however, told the press on Friday that rescue operations may not actually be performed by Japanese troops even if a request for assistance is received under a severe situation such as the situation there in July when government and opposition troops engaged in fierce combat.
