Joint Staff Chief Katsutoshi Kawano will embark on a three-nation tour in the Middle East to visit Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3. He will meet with the commanders in chief and other senior military officers in these countries to discuss defense interactions. His visit is also aimed at gathering intelligence on the region, which is becoming increasingly uncertain as the U.S. administration led by President Donald Trump is taking a pro-Israel stance. Kawano will make his first visit to the three countries.
