U.S.-Japan ceremony on Ioto Island to be suspended

Sankei wrote that the USG and the GOJ have decided not to hold this year’s annual ceremony commemorating the end of the Battle of Iwo Jima due to the coronavirus outbreak. Defense Minister Kono and other senior Japanese and USG officials and officers of the two militaries planned to attend this year’s event slated for March 28. The joint memorial event has been held every year since 1996 except for 2011 on account of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
