 The Miyakojima City council in Okinawa Prefecture adopted by a majority on July 8 a petition calling for the early deployment of Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) personnel. Mayor Toshihiko Shimoji said: “I respect the decision made by the council,” indicating that he intends to accept the deployment of GSDF troops. After receiving from the Defense Ministry explanations on such matters as where a GSDF unit will be deployed, the mayor will shortly announce the city’s decision to accept GSDF deployment.
