Most Saturday morning papers wrote that the GOJ and the Okinawa Prefectural Government held their fourth working-group meeting on Futenma relocation at the Kantei on Friday with the participation of Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Sugita and Vice Governor Ageda. The prefecture agreed to allow the GOJ to resume the suspended work to construct two barracks at Camp Schwab based on the judgment that it is not directly related to the landfill work at Henoko. The GOJ accepted the prefecture’s request to allow fishing boats and other vessels to pass through waters that are restricted due to the Henoko landfill work.
