Japan approved the allocation of funds for the maintenance of American military bases on its territory

65

The Japanese parliament, by a majority vote, extended the allocation of funds for the maintenance of American military bases in the country for another year. According to the Kyodo agency, in the future, Tokyo and Washington plan to agree on the maintenance of Americans in 2022.


Japanese parliamentarians approved the distribution of expenses for the maintenance of American military bases in the country for the 2021 fiscal year (from April 1, 2021). The expenses to be borne by the Japanese side will amount to 201,7 billion yen (about 1,9 billion dollars). This amount is equal to the expenses spent on similar expenses last year.

This includes all utility costs associated with American bases, as well as salaries for salaried civilian personnel working at the facilities.

In February of this year, Tokyo and Washington formally signed an agreement to extend the conditions of detention of American bases located in the country for another year.

Earlier it was reported that the United States was trying to shift to Japan a significant share of the costs of maintaining the American military contingent in Japanese territory. According to former adviser John Bolton, former US President Donald Trump demanded that Tokyo spend up to $ 8 billion a year to "protect Japan from attack."

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.

        If the parliament approves, it means that they do not consider themselves occupied

        It would be nice to read the definition of the words "occupation" and "freedom" ..
        The so-called "occupied" Japanese, for some reason, have a standard of living higher than not only the "free" Russians, but are in no way inferior in this respect to the "occupiers" themselves ..
        In general, not everything is so simple ..

      Expensive 8 billion. Trump wanted. As I understand it, there is now 2 billion price tag.

      Well, samurai should be happy, because what could be sadder than a ronin who lost and did not financially support his master laughing (declassed warrior of the feudal period of Japan, who lost the patronage of his suzerain, or failed to save him from death).

      stated that the United States does not intend to deploy its military bases on the South Kuril Islands after their transfer to Japan

      But this is generally touching! That is, additional money for investments in the Kuriles after their "transfer"? And what ... Their plan is as follows: the Yapas crush Russia, get the islands, and then pay for the construction of bases for America by their American armed forces ... It's funny!

      What kind of "samurai pride" is there when, after the Meiji Revolution, they turned from samurai into American slaves. Although they tried to show that they are "tough guys" by hanging themselves with gun-something, instead of the old forgotten ones, katana and wakizashi. Although from time to time they kicked up against the owner (as after Pearl Harbor), but then they received the next "gifts" and returned (as now) to the obedient stall.
      True, even now some prime ministers consider themselves "samurai", but in reality they are the same lambs for barbecue (in Japanese, jingisukan).

      If the samurai had known that their country would have been so lowered, they would have done a sepuku right away, such an indelible disgrace for all times, they would never be washed off.

            I just read sometime how they built it in 1942.
            Military builders ... in 9 months ... without a project ...
            photo - horror - all equipment in a swamp with tracks entirely.
            We got to the gorge - the project of the bridge on the knee - and further.
            2700 km is no joke. By the way, Canada has asphalt on its site

              Well, I'm just thinking about that. Comrade Stalin built the railway from Murmansk to the Bering Strait, and he probably had an idea to build this road across the whole of Alaska. The liberals did not come to power.

          this is not true, the Japanese do not think so, they know and remember well who bombed them, and they perfectly remember and teach in school what they did in China and Korea, and therefore it is not in vain that they are afraid of the Chinese and North Koreans, and in a sense, the southerners too , and they are really grateful to the states that they did not let them be torn to pieces, which they deserved and, just like the Germans, are very glad that with the assistance of the states they were able to develop into the leading economies of the world, and of course they are not too happy about this state of affairs, but they prefer the prosperity of the peoples of their countries to apparent independence, because their real financial power makes them independent enough to live well, but dependent enough not to do stupid things, like a drunk who knows himself and almost voluntarily goes to be treated

      Oh, okay. It's just jealousy that is heard in your words.
      Russia is ready to forgive multibillion-dollar debts and pour financial aid from above to open at least one base or at least one MTO fad (the uryakalki also call it a brilliant foreign policy). But as we can see, there are no people who want to line up.
