Abe says no information to be released on SDF’s “asset protection” operation

Most papers highlighted Prime Minister Abe’s remarks at the parliament yesterday regarding the recent “asset protection” mission carried out by MSDF vessels for a U.S. Navy supply ship. The prime minister said the GOJ will not release information on whether or not such an operation took place since doing so would have adverse effects on U.S. military operations. He explained that Japan undertakes such missions when U.S. vessels do not have sufficient self-protection capabilities.
