Japan Set to Expand Military Base in Djibouti

The Islands Society posted on 23 November 2017 a report titled "The Expansion of the Japan Self-Defense Force Base in Djibouti" by Michael Walsh, research fellow at Johns Hopkins University.

Japan has identified three hectares of land adjacent to its current base in Djibouti in order to expand its operational area. While the expansion may not occur until later next year, the bigger question is whether the base will take on added responsibilities.
