Mainichi wrote that a unit of 25 personnel of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force was dispatched to Lake Ogawara in Aomori Prefecture on Wednesday at the request of the prefectural government to survey the leakage of oil from two tanks that were jettisoned by a U.S. fighter jet on Tuesday. The paper quoted Defense Minister Onodera as reportedly telling the press on Wednesday that although the oil leakage is an issue that the U.S. military should deal with, the U.S. side has asked the SDF to address the issue.
