“Japanese Marines” to be deployed near Senkakus on regular basis 

Sankei front-paged an informal MOD decision to deploy GSDF amphibious troops in the vicinity of the Senkaku Islands on a regular basis for training to defend against possible Chinese aggression. The amphibious troops, who are stationed at an SDF camp in Nagasaki, will be mobilized in the East China Sea for training with the goal of coordinating crisis operations with troops based in Okinawa and Kagoshima. The daily added that the implementation of the planned deployment of GSDF Ospreys at Saga Airport is crucial for enabling the “Japanese Marines” to respond to potential Chinese aggression in a timely and flexible manner.
