Tokyo Shimbun wrote on Sunday that the Abe administration is set to accelerate the ongoing FRF construction off Camp Schwab, highlighting the recent commencement of operations to transport by sea massive volumes of sand and dirt to the area for reclamation. While quoting Defense Minister Onodera as saying that the operation is designed to reduce the impact on the environment and speed up the construction, the article conjectured that the central government is poised to make the FRF initiative a “fait accompli” ahead of the Okinawa gubernatorial election scheduled for next autumn.
