Asahi ran an exclusive interview with Okinawa Governor Tamaki in Osaka on Monday. Tamaki stated during the interview that he is planning to visit the United States in October or later to stress that the Futenma base’s relocation to Henoko is unjust and urge the United States to move the base functions to Guam or another location outside Japan. Tamaki, who visited Guam last month, said that although the GOJ has been insisting that Henoko is the only option, the Guam governor welcomes the relocation of bases to the island in the hope they will bring jobs and boost the local economy.
