All national dailies wrote that the governments of Japan and China will begin today the implementation of their maritime and aerial communication mechanism aimed at averting unintended clashes. The papers quoted SDF Joint Chief of Staff Kawano as telling reporters that the implementation of the mechanism is very important for avoiding unintended clashes. However, Asahi wrote that despite the planned launch of the mechanism, there are still issues that need to be settled, such as the establishment of a hotline between defense officials of the two countries. Mainichi expressed a similar view, adding that ensuring the effectiveness of the mechanism will be a challenge.
