Inada to visit Guam in mid-December

Mainichi claimed that Defense Minister Inada is likely to visit Guam on Dec. 11-12 and observe the U.S. military’s THAAD platform with the goal of strengthening bilateral missile defense cooperation to counter North Korea’s provocations. The defense minister hopes to call attention to Tokyo’s policy of continuing to strengthen the U.S.-Japan alliance under the Trump administration and its commitment to reducing the base-hosting burden on Okinawa by steadily moving forward with the planned transfer of Marines to the Pacific island.
