Sunday’s Sankei wrote that the Ministry of Defense plans to participate in a tender in Thailand in September for the nation’s procurement of a new air defense system. Japan plans to tender a bid for the sale of the J/FPS-3 system used by the ASDF. The paper wrote that Japan may be able to keep China in check if it can export to Southeast Asia a key defense system used by the SDF, but there is concern within the GOJ that Bangkok may hesitate to import the Japan-developed system out of deference to Beijing.
