Sunday’s Sankei front-paged a report saying it learned on Saturday that Japan will extend its capacity building initiative for armed forces of other countries to Fiji in a first-ever project with the U.S. and Australia involving a Pacific island state in an attempt to counter China’s increasing efforts to make Fiji a Chinese military stronghold. The paper reported that the groundwork for the realization of this project was laid by a delegation to Fiji on June 5-7 led by the prime minister’s assistant Sonoura and comprising officials from the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the Defense Ministry, the Japan Coast Guard, and the Japan External Trade Organization.
