Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ has decided to extend by one year through Nov. 19, 2021, the MSDF’s participation in multinational anti-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia based on the judgment that its withdrawal from the initiative might embolden pirates to resume their violent activities at sea. Some 50 additional personnel, including mechanics for a P-3C patrol plane, will join the unit.
