Sankei, Mainichi, and Nikkei wrote that the House of Councillors on Wednesday approved Japan’s acquisition and cross-servicing agreements (ACSAs) with France and Canada, saying that pending the completion of similar procedures by the two partners, the military arrangements will probably take effect in June. Mainichi wrote that as Japan has already implemented corresponding arrangements with the U.S., Australian, and UK militaries, the latest ACSAs will further enhance defense cooperation with foreign partners in view of China’s maritime advancement in the South and East China Seas.
