Asahi wrote that the GOJ has informed several key members of the ruling coalition of its plan to approve at a cabinet meeting by the end of the year the dispatch of SDF assets to the Middle East. The paper speculated that the GOJ is hoping to send an MSDF warship and a P-3C patrol plane in January or later. The paper conjectured that the GOJ’s efforts to approve the SDF dispatch by year’s end are intended to demonstrate to the United States Japan’s cooperative stance on maritime security efforts in the region.
