Construction of a US military airfield resumed in Okinawa


“At the present stage of work in the area of ​​the village of Henoko, the installation of 200 concrete blocks is planned as a shield to prevent pollution of the sea by construction debris,” the report says. At the same time, Japanese experts will probe the seabed in the place where the take-off and landing side will be built.

It is planned to transfer to the area of ​​the island the American base “Futemma”, located in the densely populated center of Okinawa near the city of Ginowan.

Work began on October 2015, but was suspended due to opposition from the prefectural administration and the local population. The central government, associated with US security commitments, managed to defend the construction through the courts.

According to officials, the transfer of the base is carried out in order to save the inhabitants of Ginowan from the threat of the collapse of American planes and helicopters.

      Yeah ... The tram took hold of China tightly ... The trouble is that having finished the swara with China, it is easy to switch to us, and the base is already in that area and it is ready ... So, "fig to you" not the Kuril Islands

        They were one of the first in this row. Back in September 1945, then they said goodbye to the Kuril Islands.

          Generally not a bad trend. Whoever attacked Russia, in the end, lost a piece of their land in favor of Russia.

      What kind of Kuril Islands are there if Japan has been under occupation since the middle of the last century?

      Most likely the opposite. In the Kuril Islands they were shown a bolt, and if it doesn’t shine, then you can continue to bend

    To protect the population from "highly reliable" convertiplanes, the Americans had to build a new airfield.

    Well, how sweet ... And after that, it makes no sense to even talk about joint economic issues with the gazydayas.

    "... The construction of a US military airfield resumed in Okinawa ..."
    The occupation is not Khuhra - Muhra, after all.
