NHK reported that following the incident in which a Futenma-based AH-1 helicopter made an unscheduled landing in Yomitan, Okinawa, the local assembly unanimously adopted this morning a resolution of protest calling for the suspension of flights by all military aircraft based at MCAS Futenma until the cause of the incident has been identified. The resolution reportedly points out that the anger of local residents has “reached a peak,” and also calls for the consolidation and reduction of U.S. military bases in Okinawa, the removal of U.S. Marines from Okinawa, and the drastic revision of the SOFA. The network added that the assembly will deliver the resolution to the USFJ.
