This growing military relationship is probably one of the most important to watch as we approach the middle decades of the 21st Century.

The Indo-Pacific Deployment (IPD) units, JS KAGA and JS IKAZUCHI, will conduct

bilateral exercise “JIMEX” with the Indian Navy (IN) as described below.

1. Objectives

(1) To improve JMSDF’s tactical capabilities

(2) To strengthen the relationship with the IN

2. Period

SEP 26 (SAT) – SEP 28 (MON), 2020

3. Exercise Area

 At sea and airspace in the west of India

4. Participating Units

It appears both navies are bringing their varsity squad. All free nations should welcome this hopefully growing relationship.
