All national dailies reported on a meeting held between Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga and Okinawa Governor Tamaki at the Kantei on Thursday, saying that they were unable to narrow the gap between the GOJ and Okinawa over the construction at Henoko. The papers wrote that in response to Tamaki’s request not to start pouring earth into the landfill site at Henoko, Suga told the governor that although the GOJ understands Okinawa’s position, it will move forward with the plan as scheduled.


Governor Tamaki told reporters afterward that the people of Okinawa will voice strong anger against the central government’s hardline stance.
