Japan, Germany pursue defence equipment projects

by Jon Grevatt

Japan and Germany have outlined a commitment to expand co-operation in defence equipment and technologies in line with a recently signed information-sharing accord.

The commitment was announced during meetings between the two countries’ respective foreign and defence ministers in Tokyo on 13 April. An official statement said Japan and Germany will “further promote security co-operation including in the field of defence equipment”.

The statement said this co-operation will be supported by a ‘Japan-Germany Information Protection Agreement’, which was signed in March.
