Yomiuri wrote that the MSDF announced on Thursday that the United States, Japan, Australia, and South Korea have begun conducting a joint exercise in waters near Guam. The paper said this is the first time for the MSDF and the ROK navy to train together since the incident in December 2018 in which a Korean warship illuminated a Japanese patrol plane with fire-control radar. Noting that the United States took the initiative in organizing the exercise, the paper speculated that it is an attempt by the U.S. to urge Japan and the ROK to improve their ties.
