Okinawa Times wrote from Washington that following the victory in the Okinawa gubernatorial election on Sunday of former Lower House member Denny Tamaki, who is opposed to the FRF construction at Henoko, an unnamed State Department official reportedly told the paper that the construction work there will continue because the Futenma base’s relocation to Henoko is based on an agreement between the United States and Japan. The official congratulated Tamaki on his victory and said that the U.S. government deeply respects Okinawa’s contributions to the U.S.-Japan alliance. Concerning the possibility of the GOJ taking legal action against the prefectural government’s revocation of the landfill permit, the paper quoted the official as reportedly saying that the U.S. government will monitor future developments.
