Japan likely to join Indo-US navy drill




Indian and US navies would demonstrate their marine defence capability in the 15th edition of Malabar exercise on eastern seaboard in Bay of Bengal stretched from Vizag to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands that guards the approaches to the Strait of Malacca which is considered to be one of the world’s busiest waterways. Malabar-2012 is scheduled between 9-16 April.
Japan’s Maritime Self-Defence Force has also expressed willingness to take part in the exercise.
Even last year, Japan was expected to participate, but because of Tsumani disaster it failed to make it.
During defence minister AK Antony’s visit to Tokoyo in November 2011, his counterpart Yasuo Ichikawa expressed Japan’s desire to boost bilateral defence cooperation by participating in joint exercises, in view of China’s growing maritime assertiveness.
