Sankei led with a report saying it learned from multiple GOJ sources on Tuesday that the United States, the UK, and Australia have separately and informally sounded out Japan on the possibility of it joining the AUKUS security framework, speculating that the invitation is aimed at incorporating Japan’s technologies in their development of hypersonic weapons and electronic warfare capabilities. The paper wrote that while some in the GOJ think joining AUKUS is a good idea, others remain cautious because Japan already has agreements with each AUKUS member on strategic partnerships and the transfer of defense equipment and technology.
