Fuji TV reported at noon that the GOJ and a land development company have concluded a deal on the GOJ’s purchase of Mageshima island in Kagoshima, which is cited in a June 2011 joint U.S.-Japan document as a relocation site for field carrier landing practice by U.S. military aircraft. The network said that the GOJ and the firm signed the agreement on Thursday after five years of negotiations. The network quoted the president of the company as saying: “It took a really long time, but I hope the agreement will be utilized for the benefit of the local people.” The network said both sides will now conduct a land assessment and finalize the price.
