Japan, Germany sign information protection agreement 

Nikkei wrote that the governments of Japan and Germany signed on Monday an information protection agreement that facilitates their sharing of such military information as unit operation plans and antiterrorism measures. The paper wrote that the pact is intended to enhance the two nations’ security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific in view of China’s maritime advancement in the region. Japan has already forged similar agreements with eight nations, including the United States, the UK, Australia, India, and South Korea. The paper wrote that Germany set guidelines for its diplomacy in the Indo-Pacific in September 2020 and underscored its intention to increase cooperation with the United States, Japan, Australia, and India since it shares such common values as the rule of law and the freedom of navigation with these nations. Germany is planning to send a frigate to Asia this summer. Asahi and Mainichi ran similar reports.
