Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera stressed at a news conference on June 8 that there is no change in the Air Self-Defense Force’s plan to introduce F-35A fighters despite the 966 technical issues with the F-35 pointed out by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). “This is an aircraft that will greatly contribute to reinforcing our defense capabilities,” he said. “We will proceed with the current plan to procure them.”
