Saturday morning’s Asahi and several other papers reported that Defense Minister Inada is making arrangements to visit Okinawa on Sept. 10 to meet with Governor Onaga. Noting that a ruling on the lawsuit over Futenma relocation will be made on Sept. 16, Asahi wrote that the defense chief is hoping to call for local understanding on the issue by expressing her intention to work to reduce the base-hosting burden on Okinawa. Today’s Sankei wrote that Inada may tour Camp Schwab and hold talks with Nago Mayor Inamine and the leaders of the two municipalities where the new U.S. military helipads for the Northern Training Area will be located.
