Koizumi looks to extend SDF mission to Iraq

"KYOTO -- Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi suggested after talking with visiting U.S. President George Bush on Wednesday that Japan would extend the period of dispatch for its Self-Defense Forces (SDF) in Iraq.

Koizumi said during a press conference he held with Bush that he would make a decision over the dispatch of SDF troops to Iraq after considering the importance of the Japan-U.S. alliance."
