Sunday’s Ryukyu Shimpo reported that the Okinawa prefectural government is set to ask the GOJ and USG to create a new framework for taking its opinions into account when dealing with misconduct and accidents involving U.S. military personnel and hardware. The prefectural government is calling for such a mechanism since it was left out of the loop when the U.S. military decided in consultation with the central government to resume Osprey aerial refueling training. Pointing out that a similar dialogue framework involving the three parties was established in 1979 but became irrelevant in the early 2000s, the article said the viability of such a framework will depend on its participants and rules.
