Japan and Australia intend to conclude an agreement on regular military exercises

Japanese and Australian authorities plan to conclude an agreement that will allow for regular joint military exercises in the territory of both countries, reports TASS the message of the newspaper Yomiuri shimbun.




This will actually turn Australia into a military "half-ally" of Japan, the newspaper said.

It is reported that a general agreement on the agreement "is expected to be worked out during the upcoming visit to Tokyo by the Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull in January."

The document “will allow duty-free delivery of equipment and other materials, as well as weapons and ammunition for units participating in exercises in the territory of another country, respectively Japan or Australia,” the article says.

In addition, the contract will determine the procedure for the consideration of possible offenses committed by foreign military.

It is expected that on the basis of these agreements, the first joint maneuvers of the air forces of both countries will be held next year.

Similar negotiations in the 2018 year are expected to be held with the UK. In fact, "it is about connecting London and Canberra to the system of a comprehensive military alliance between the US and Japan," the newspaper notes.

    will turn Australia into a military "Half ally" Japan
    Half there, half here, and in the end, if necessary, not a single one. Another thing is interesting - what are the common and mutual interests of Japan and Australia. Perhaps the DPRK threat has already reached Australia?

      The common interest is China (No.1), the growth of Islamic extremism in Southeast Asia (No.2) and, of course, the DPRK.

    Well, they need to make friends with someone)) so that it is against anyone ... otherwise soon the countries of this region will all be oriented toward China ... America is far away ... any territory will be substituted in the conflict as a bargaining chip ...

    And here is a LOT of questions. And this is Australia, which simply "trembled" in anticipation of the invasion of the "yuppie" during World War II ... So much so that it adjusted the release of such a "freak."

    And the second question, how did the Japanese "Self-Defense Forces" "suddenly" decide to leave their territory?

        . What is the organ on his lobovuha?

        You don’t have to laugh at what happened, but this is a Vickers machine gun of liquid cooling, they shoved it in there ... But it turned out, what happened, we were in a hurry very much ... There was apparently no other model to follow ... Used, what's at hand, and in the literal sense .... By the way, it turned out realistically .... I just want to say: "I believe"
