The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) has dispatched Murasame-class destroyer JS Inazuma to escort the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Anzac-class frigate HMAS Warramunga, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) in Tokyo has announced.

The escort mission marks the first time that Japanese forces have protected warships other than US Navy (USN) vessels.

The mission took place during bilateral exercise ‘Nichi Gou Trident', which was conducted from 10 to 12 November south of Shikoku (one of Japan's four main islands), at the request of Australia, the MoD announced on 12 November.

“Protection of the Australian military represents enhanced interoperability and closer co-operation with our special strategic partner Australia,” the MoD said.

The ministry also added that “bilateral defence co-operation is vital to maintain the peace and stability of Japan and this region”.
