Japan’s Kyodo News agency says a joint Japan-US exercise is to be held in November, simulating the retaking of a remote island.

Troops from Japan’s self defense forces will work alongside US troops stationed in Japan, for the drill near an inhabited island in Okinawa prefecture. The Island exercises are part of an overall joint drill being held from November the 5th to the 16th.

Naval, land and air forces from both countries are expected to participate in the drills. Some 10 thousand soldiers are expected to take part.
