Commencement of Japan-Australia cooperation in UNMISS

South Sudan

Japan and Australia have dispatched personnel to the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS), and personnel from the SDF and Australian Defense Force (ADF) are engaged in activities as part of the Mission. The Australian side has raised proposals for Japan–Australia Cooperation in the Mission, and the Japan and Australia defense authorities have held many discussions on the possible areas of cooperation. As a result of the deliberations, since August 31, the SDF and the ADF have been working together mainly in Juba, the Republic of South Sudan. Two ADF personnel have been deployed to provide the SDF with information related to the implementation of UNMISS mandate and liaison services to assist communication and coordination with relevant bodies including UN agencies.
