Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday viewed special operations exercises at an army camp near Tokyo, demonstrating his country’s solidarity with Japan regarding the North Korean crisis.

 Turnbull toured Camp Narashino, east of Tokyo, with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The military installation is home to the special operations unit of Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force, the nation’s only such unit.

The unit, comprising some 300 soldiers, is charged with conducting counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations and has recently been assigned the role of rescuing Japanese nationals residing abroad.
