Nikkei and Yomiuri wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno told reporters on Wednesday that the Japan Coast Guard spotted what appeared to be an armed North Korean ship in the Yamatotai fishing grounds located within Japan’s EEZ in late June. In response to an earlier press report that the ship was a North Korean government vessel armed with a mobile anti-aircraft missile, Matsuno said that the GOJ did not describe the vessel in detail in order not to reveal Japan’s ability to collect and analyze sensitive information.
