Yomiuri wrote that during a policy speech at the Diet on Monday, Prime Minister Abe reportedly stated that the SDF conducted operations to escort a U.S. military vessel and aircraft last year based on Japan’s new security-related laws. The paper wrote that although the GOJ has disclosed that an MSDF vessel protected a U.S. Navy refueling ship last May, this was the first time for it to reveal that the SDF has escorted U.S. military aircraft. Asahi, Mainichi, and Tokyo Shimbun ran similar reports.
