Yomiuri wrote that Defense Minister Onodera will visit Saga Prefecture on July 23 to discuss the GOJ plan to deploy the GSDF Osprey at Saga Airport in the future. The paper speculated that the defense minister will seek local understanding for the plan by explaining the need for the deployment for the defense of the Nansei Islands. Nikkei ran a similar report, noting that the GOJ’s consultations with Saga have been suspended since a GSDF helicopter crashed in the prefecture in February.
