Japan officially extended the maintenance of American military bases

Tokyo and Washington have officially signed an agreement to extend the conditions of detention of American bases located in the country for another year. This was announced by Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi.


The agreement defining the costs of the parties for the maintenance of the American military was signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and acting US Ambassador to Japan Joseph Young. In addition, the United States and Japan agreed to further strengthen the bilateral alliance.

(...) signed a bilateral agreement on the cost of maintaining the US military as agreed. Next, we will ask parliament to approve the document so that the agreement goes into effect before the end of this fiscal year

- the minister said.

It is noted that Tokyo and Washington last week agreed on the distribution of the content of American military bases in Japan until March 31, 2022. Japanese spending for the year will be around $ 1,9 billion. These include all utility costs associated with US bases, as well as salaries for salaried civilian personnel working at the facilities.

Former US President Donald Trump tried to shift to Japan a significant share of the cost of maintaining American military bases in Japanese territory. According to former adviser John Bolton, Trump demanded that Tokyo spend up to $ 8 billion a year on this.

Earlier, the commander of the American military group in Japan, Lieutenant General Jerry Martinez, said that the United States did not intend to place its military bases on the South Kuril Islands after their transfer to Japan.

        The winner dictates the terms to the loser.

        It is on these grounds that the Japanese should be sent into the depths of the sea as soon as they open their mouths about the Kuriles.

              American bases (91 in total) have been in Japan since the end of World War II (over 75 years) and the agreement constantly extended by mutual agreement. yes

              Does anyone have any doubts that American bases will definitely in the South Kuriles, if the Japanese are lucky to surrender them to Russia, contrary to the vows of the Americans not to place them there? lol

            exactly! I explained to the Japanese that your claims are complete nonsense. They referred to some kind of agreement, but I answered, so we fought. What do you want to return to the pre-war treaties.

    "Japan officially extended the maintenance of American military bases"

    By this, Japan officially extended the rejection of the peace treaty with Russia and the rejection of the Kuril Islands.

        Japan is not sovereign. Having US military bases on its territory, it has no right to even discuss any territorial issues a priori. This is what I meant.
        And about the "ears", I agree with you and agree with you.

    Everyone is waiting and will not wait for a gift from the master's shoulder - the Kuril Islands from Putin or the liberoids of Russia. No wonder a gap was made in the new amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation:
    2.1. The Russian Federation ensures the protection of its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Actions (except delimitation, demarcation, re-demarcation the state border of the Russian Federation with neighboring states), aimed at alienating part of the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as calls for such actions are not allowed.

    Delimitation - this is a marking with subsequent demarcation, which means that the alienation of a part of the territory of the Russian Federation can be carried out by me if it is agreed upon during negotiations on the definition of borders before concluding a peace treaty with the limiting party. We were deceived again ?! And what could one want from the corrupt liberoid Krashennikov - Nemtsov's accomplice, who participated in the writing of new amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation ...

    in fact, quite a shameful fact for Japan - they not only allowed military bases on their territory, but also pay a significant portion of their upkeep.
    And Okinawa has essentially become American. There, the base employees do whatever they want.
