Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ is planning to send a high-ranking official in charge of national security to Egypt in February to survey the situation in the Sinai Peninsula ahead of the proposed deployment of two GSDF officers to the Multinational Force & Observers (MFO), a peacekeeping mission tasked with overseeing the terms of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. The SDF personnel are expected to work as liaisons at the MFO headquarters in Sharm el Sheikh. The GOJ plans to make a formal decision on the dispatch after confirming that the local security situation is stable enough to ensure the safety of the SDF officials.
