The Japanese Navy would like to hold search and rescue exercises with the Russian Pacific Fleet as planned in late September near Vladivostok, the Nikkei newspaper said on Monday.
Along with the joint manoeuvres, the Japanese Navy command plans to hold consultations with Russian colleagues to confirm the unchanged policy to continue bilateral ties in defense.
Japan and Russia have held search and rescue exercises since 1998. Last December, the 14th such exercises took place near the Japanese port of Maizuru. During the joint training, Japan’s missile destroyer Shirane, the missile boat Hayabusa and support vessels and the Russian large anti-submarine ship Admiral Vinogradov, a tanker and a tugboat conducted search and rescue operations, manoeuvred and examined a “suspicious” vessel.
However, contacts have been suspended since March this year in connection with the situation in Ukraine and Tokyo’s joining anti-Russian sanctions.
