At a cabinet meeting on Jan. 14, the government decided to disburse some 500 million yen from the reserve budget for this fiscal year to cover costs necessary to send Maritime Self-Defense Force units to the waters of the Middle East. The money will be used for this fiscal year’s fuel expenses and charges for accessing local ports for refueling. The government has earmarked some 4.7 billion yen in the initial draft budget to cover next fiscal year’s expenses related to the dispatch.
