On April 23, the Ministry of Defense (MOD) said it will once again extend the period of the survey for the deployment of the Aegis Ashore ground-based missile defense system currently being conducted in the Tohoku region until May 31. The ministry says the decision was made after it was told by its contractor that the nationwide declaration of a state of emergency over the new coronavirus outbreak is delaying the work and preventing it from completing the survey by the deadline.
