U.S., Japan to hold tabletop exercise on missile defense

Nikkei wrote that the Ministry of Defense announced on Thursday that the Japan Self-Defense Forces will hold tabletop exercises for ballistic missile defense with the United States February 16-23. Although the two nations had conducted similar exercises involving the U.S. Navy and the Maritime Self-Defense Force until last year, they will expand their scope this year by including the U.S. Air Force, the Marines, and the Air Self-Defense Force. The paper speculated that the expanded exercises are intended to display a firm stance toward North Korea.
