As per industry analysts, the agreement will enable each nation to transport defense equipment and arms to another country in a relatively easy manner. It has been anticipated that the strategic move will help the Japanese and Australian defense forces to carry out joint military activities in a more effective manner.
Defense analysts cite that the purpose of VFA is to fight terrorism and equip the host country with modern ammunition and defense equipment to counter the terrorist activities prevalent in that region. Furthermore, there is a widespread claim that the deal can prove mutually beneficial for both the host and the foreign country as it would strengthen their alliance in terms of defense & security matters.
