NHK reported online on Monday afternoon that the Defense Ministry announced earlier in the day that its surveys conducted at the sites selected for the deployment of Aegis Ashore systems in Yamaguchi and Akita have shown that radio waves from Aegis Ashore radars would have no effect on the local residents. However, the ministry reportedly intends to strengthen security measures after deployment to address the local people’s concern that these sites may be targeted for attack. State Minister of Defense Harada met with Akita Governor Satake and Mayor Hozumi on Monday to explain the survey results. National dailies also carried reports on Harada’s meeting with Satake and Hozumi.
