Yomiuri reported that during a session of the Akita prefectural assembly today, Governor Satake said hosting an Aegis Ashore battery at a local SDF facility would be “extremely difficult” due to its proximity to residential areas. Noting he is currently arranging a meeting with Defense Minister Kono, the daily said the local leader is likely to convey clear opposition to the ministry’s desire to deploy the missile interceptor at the GSDF training ground.
