President Rodrigo Duterte and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on November 13 during their bilateral meeting in Manila witnessed the exchanging of notes for establishment of coast watch radars to increase the Philippine anti-terrorism capabilities in West Mindanao for the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

Six of ten 44-meter patrol vessels were already delivered while 2 Japan-made 94-meter patrol vessels are also in the pipeline to be funded by Japan.
Prime Minister Abe said “in order to ensure the effective operation of the patrol vessels and other equipment, Japan will provide coastal surveillance radars to the Philippines and the support team for capacity building, which was established by the Japan Coast Guard in October, will implement its first training sessions and drills in November in Manila,” according to the joint statement released after Abe-Duterte summit meeting on October 30.
