The United States returns a piece of land in Okinawa to the Japanese

The Pentagon returns on Thursday Japan 4 thousand hectares on the island of Okinawa, which was used by the Americans to conduct exercises.


The United States returns a piece of land in Okinawa to the Japanese


As Japanese media reported earlier, in return, 6 helicopter pads were built in the same area to be used by Osprey converters.

Okinawa Governor Takeshi Onaga decided not to take part in the land transfer ceremony, because he was seeking to bring the convertoplanes out of the prefecture (one of them recently fell off the coast of Okinawa, causing concern to local people for their safety).

The land is returned in accordance with the agreement of the USA and Japan from 1996.

For their part, the Americans said that "the reduction of the zone of military exercises in Okinawa does not undermine Washington’s obligations and ability to interact with the Japanese government and the Japanese Self-Defense Forces."

On the eve of the commander of the US contingent in Japan, General Lawrence Nicholson said that in the future will be transferred to another piece of land as a sign of respect for the desire of residents to reduce the American military presence in Okinawa.

As noted by the agency Kyodo, despite the current "gift", about 70% of all Pentagon objects in Japan will still be concentrated on the island.

    "instead, 6 helipads have been built in the same area, which will be used by the American Osprey tiltrotor."
    So return or change? These are two big differences.

      As if they are returning the japam, but the Yankees will use it, and the Japanese will pay for the "reclamation" and equipment of the landfill for the helipad. In how famously twisted, the Americans are masters of scalping and skinning states. America is on that.

      At the same time, the Japanese will obviously remain indebted to the United States for the "gesture of goodwill."

    Some kind of very interesting gesture.

    Americans just do nothing.

    And yapis will kiss again for a broad gesture. And will be allowed to base. So what?

    I still still amazed by their mutual love after Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Such a short memory in humans? Japan is just hugging them! I do not understand this. Prrrrost here is how?

    Like - "Well, you are the first, and the only one in the world who used nuclear weapons on our civilians, twice. Well, okay, thanks for ah background." It's just not comprehensible to the mind.! Samurai damn it.

      Fursov once talked about this. He talked with a Japanese scientist, and he said that only Russians can tear a vest on his chest in a hopeless situation and go chest on machine guns. The Japanese realize that the Yankees are currently stronger and more patiently waiting for the east. As soon as a real opportunity presents itself, the Japanese will remember everything. And with a big addition)))

      On the contrary, Japanese people remember the war. And the total destruction that she caused.
      And so they want to live in peace with their neighbors, rather than climb
      to conquer them, as the samurai militarists did in the 30-40s.

        Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in a statement on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, said that modern Japanese should not endlessly bear the burden of guilt for the actions of the Japanese army.

    Great! Convertibles! A much needed Piece for the Marine Corps! It’s a pity that in Russia there isn’t such a thing ... Apparently, we still won’t take the constructors forward from the design bureau (and that’s not a fact, the children will continue to rivet them), they will give the way to young figs ...

Or are you one of those who also agree with the journalist who compared our ambassador to the fascist who was killed by a Jewish student in France? Campaign you mishandled Troll that distorts words.

          Have you read the article?
          "Land is returned in accordance with the 1996 agreement between the United States and Japan."]

          The bases exist on the basis of treaties of the governments of Japan and the USA.
          Just as a Russian military base in Syria exists on
          based on treaties of the governments of Syria and Russia.

        Warrior, well, not a very correct comparison. Russian Syrians were not killed by atomic bombs, their country was not captured. Russia and Syria have very long-standing good partnerships, at least. And we never pressured them politically request

    Compared hell to a finger, probably Japan is also occupied by terrorists, and the Americans are shedding blood for them? In gratitude for this, the Japanese gave the land "forever". oh yes, the Americans are the only ones who really help Japan, and do not strike at a dastardly blow from around the corner.
