U.S., Japanese defense chiefs to discuss force realignment in Okinawa

Okinawa Times reported from Washington that Secretary of Defense Esper and Defense Minister Kono are scheduled to meet in Guam on Aug. 29, projecting that they will exchange views on U.S. force realignment projects in Okinawa, including the FRF construction off Camp Schwab and the relocation of Naha Military Port to Urasoe City. According to a DOD source, the GOJ has already informed the USG of a recent four-party agreement between the central government, prefectural government, and municipal governments of Naha and Urasoe to move the functions of the military port to the northern section of a seaport in Urasoe. The two officials are also expected to discuss COVID-19 infection among the U.S. military community in Okinawa.
