Japan recently signed an agreement with the United Kingdom for an exchange of information and opinions on fighter aircraft technologies, which could result in the two countries pursuing a "future collaborative project".

Japan’s Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Agency announced in a 16 March news release that the agreement on exchange of information was signed with the UK Ministry of Defense, which puts no restrictions on continuing discussions on developing a next-generation combat jet with other countries, Flightglobal reports.

“Regarding the possibility of international joint development on fighter aircraft in the future, we will continue to exchange views with other countries,” Japan’s MoD says.

The agreement with Japan to study future fighter programmes comes only two months after the British government won a $125 million contract from the Turkish government to initiate collaboration on the TF-X fighter programme.
