The organizing committee of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games on Jan. 17 asked the Ministry of Defense (MOD) for the Self-Defense Forces’ cooperation in such activities as the security of venues for games. The committee will be able to secure more than 14,000 private security guards as it expected when driving to bring the Olympics to Tokyo. Its request for the SDF’s security support is aimed at enhancing readiness in response to the growing threats of international terrorism and cyberattacks. The committee and the MOD will shortly discuss what the SDF can do. (Abridged)
