Sankei wrote today that although internal coordination is underway within the GOJ to deploy an SDF warship and/or aircraft for maritime security operations in the Middle East, the dispatch may take place later than the target date of early next year due to cautious views and strong opposition within the ruling and opposition camps.  The daily added that the GOJ may operate such assets in the Strait of Hormuz, in addition to the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea, and the passage between Yemen and Djibouti.
