Japan is considering the option of independently escorting ships flying the Japanese flag in the areas of the Gulf of Oman and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and does not plan to join the US coalition being created. It is reported by the Japanese edition Nikkei.

Japan may send ships to the Gulf of Oman to protect its ships




Japan does not plan to join the US-led anti-Iran coalition in order not to spoil relations with Tehran, but is considering several options for an independent operation to protect Japanese ships in the area. According to preliminary data, there are three such options.

The first version assumes that several patrol ships of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces will be sent to the Gulf of Oman and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which will perform the functions of protecting ships traveling with Japanese cargo. In this case, ships will be given the right to open fire in the event of a serious situation.

The second option involves air patrolling of these areas with Japanese aircraft from a military base located in Djibouti. According to the third option, ships are sent to the area and air patrolling is carried out, i.e. the first and second options are combined.

It is emphasized that the area of ​​the Japanese operation will be limited only to the Gulf of Oman and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait near Yemen, in contrast to the US Sentinel program, which is extended not only to Yemen, but also to Iran. Tokyo says it does not want to spoil good relations with Tehran.

    Everything seems to be adequate!

      So the Iranians need to send their ships to the island of Hokkaido to protect free navigation. smile
      The Anglo-Saxons began to engage in pseudo-pretense of maritime piracy, and the Japanese looking at them decided to do the same ... there is definitely not enough captain Jack Sparrow and representatives of the East India Company in this company.

        Is Japan Capturing 3 Tankers in the Last Month? Iran has repeatedly threatened to completely block the strait, that is, it will not let Japanese tankers go, and Japan has not detained any Iranian tankers in Gibraltar.

          Japan is an ally of the United States and it is clear that it may also be under attack on its tankers.
          It is also clear that this is all the consequences of US sanctions against Iran ... the Anglo-Saxons slowly and consistently chop all the threads of Iranian oil supplies abroad ... a conflict is inevitable.

      Japanese, if they are not pressed against the wall, are usually careful and polite.
      every Japanese invasion of China or Korea or war with the United States all had internal economic causes. Now they have no such acute reasons to drill.

          the emperor is a screen. Taxi there capital, or rather the 5 richest families.
          That is why there is an ultra-conservative policy. And so it has been since the days of Sengoku - who is richer, he rules in Japan.

            It is interesting, but should the emperor declare war on them, or did they lower the right / duty down, whatever prime minister?

      In fact, everyone doesn’t give a damn about the Japanese little ships, so the samurai go to the call of their overlords, otherwise the Europeans overturned them, and someone should rake if something

        The Japanese get the bulk of their energy resources from that region, so if there was any "call", it was first of all an understanding of the need to protect their interests. Another bad thing, the "self-defense forces" went out into the world ocean, in violation of their Constitution

          If they were thinking about their interests, they would have pulled the pipe away from us, because it’s more profitable than carrying tankers over half the world, again it’s rarely calm in the bay, not alone, the others muddied the water, so it’s much more reasonable to take energy from us. But this is completely unacceptable to the Americans, because the Japanese will do what they are told.
          So, in essence, "self-defense forces" is a loose concept. In the end, you can attack someone, for the sake of self-defense, so that later you will not be attacked. In fact, they have a fleet, a good fleet, plus they are improving it. They are preparing for something, in my opinion

    What will happen if a Japanese tanker is stopped or captured by an English warship (as was the case with the Panamanian region of Gibraltar?)
    Will beat back or "show their concern" recourse

    Japan is not sovereign strange (from the word at all).
    According to a security agreement with the United States, Americans have the right to use Japanese territory, the Japanese government must give its consent to the deployment of any bases on the Japanese islands.
    And now Washington gave the command and the Japanese galloped off in gait where the owner ordered.

      Of course, the good owner, until the slave rebels.

    The Japanese are trying to sit on several chairs at the same time. They are not the first - they are not the last. But to nobody - it still did not succeed. The star-striped regime has never defended anyone against its interests. With Japan it will be, as with previous obedient puppets.

    they seem to have a constitution in general declare war no one has the right, but there are a number of loopholes.
    the emperor in Japan is now a moral leader rather than a key figure in politics or economics. Consider it the equivalent of our priest.
