Australia and Japan postpone Exercise BUSHIDO GUARDIAN due to earthquake
7 September 2018
Australia and Japan have postponed the inaugural Exercise BUSHIDO GUARDIAN, following the Hokkaido earthquake on 6 September.
Australia looks forward to rescheduling BUSHIDO GUARDIAN with Japan at a mutually convenient time in the future.
BUSHIDO GUARDIAN, a jet-fighter exercise, is the realisation of a long-held ambition to expand our defence cooperation to include a bilateral air exercise, and represents a significant step forward as part of our Special Strategic Partnership with Japan.
