Press Conference by the Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary (Excerpt)

[Provisional Translation]



REPORTER: My question concerns the situation in North Korea. According to an announcement by the U.S. Pacific Air Forces, joint exercises were conducted involving two U.S. B1 strategic bombers, Self-Defense Force aircraft, and military units of the Republic of Korea. The joint exercise took place at night on October 11. Could you please confirm the facts and explain the aim of conducting a joint exercise at this time?

DEPUTY CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY NOGAMI: I would like to refrain from disclosing the details of the operation. In any case, Japan will take steps to be fully prepared for any response, based on the robust foundation of the U.S.-Japan Alliance.
