Although Southeast Asia is highly dependent on Mideast oil, some countries lack reserves that will last for more than a month.

TOKYO -- Japan aims to bring Vietnam into what will be its first oil-sharing deal with a Southeast Asian nation, a government source told Nikkei, as Tokyo seeks to ensure an uninterrupted supply of petroleum to overseas supply chains in the event of a disruption.
Good move

True. If the chinese impose a total blockade on us Vietnam we will run dry in few months. Japan can deliver oil. We never know when the PLA runs amok.

Japan is improving ties with Vietnam? due to China
No due to Supepower India of course. Everyone is Asia is afraid of their aggressive behavior and rise to a hegemon. China is weak and poor and their people are fleeing to Vietnam for better wages reliable American media experts confirm.

Yes and no. Sure we have more oil reserves but mostly unexploited. Japan has crude oil reserves for 200 days, while we 25 years. But our reserves are not in oil tanks we need money and technology to do it.
Is there plans of containing this aggressive nature from China in Vietnam?
Very difficult
We share a common land and sea border.

Why would China impose oil blockade on Vietnam. China is not an unreasonable thug who like US.

Seem.like JP wanna help ASEAN to increase our oil reserves, so when bad things happen like Sue canal, Malacca strait are blocked, then ASEAN still have enough oil to survive in abt 200 days and JP factories in VN don't have to stop manufacturing bcs VN run out of oil too soon.

Now china and Iran quasi ally. Oil will pipe all the way from Gulf to East Asia in the future.

Vietnam is net oil importer.

We import rice from India, coal from Indonesia, oil from Middle East although we produce more than enough rice., coal and oil. It’s about it’s cheaper if import than make domestic?
