All national papers except Sankei reported on yesterday’s meeting of a panel of geologists and engineers commissioned by the Defense Ministry to examine its plan to reinforce the soft seabed off the coast of Camp Schwab as part of the FRF construction initiative. While noting that the opposition bloc has urged the ministry to conduct additional research in response to a view presented by some that the soft seabed in the vicinity is much deeper than the ministry has calculated, the papers noted that the experts’ team found “no problem” with the methodology used by the ministry to check the depth of the soft seabed.
