In addition, we agreed to cooperate with each other by creating opportunities for active exchanges and bilateral exercise.
Despite COVID-19, the Self-Defense Fleet remains ready to immediately respond against unexpected circumstances and integrates with Japan Coast Guard in order to carry out maritime surveillance of Japan's territorial and surrounding waters.
