U.S. military to improve incident notification procedure

Saturday morning’s Mainichi reported that following the incident in which a part from a USMC Osprey was found drifting near Ikei Island in Uruma, Okinawa, on Feb. 9, Defense Minister Onodera disclosed to reporters on Friday that the U.S. side has explained that it will continue to improve the procedure for notifying the Japanese government of such incidents. The paper wrote that the U.S. Marines failed to report the incident to the USFJ headquarters even though a U.S. commander is supposed to notify the local defense authority, police, Japan Coast Guard, and USFJ headquarters based on a Japan-U.S. Joint Committee agreement.
