Asahi wrote that the Defense Ministry started discussions yesterday with the municipal government of Nishinoomote, Kagoshima, concerning the plan to build an SDF camp on the island of Mageshima with the ultimate goal of relocating U.S. military FCLP training there. The dialogue was launched in response to a request from the mayor, who remains extremely cautious about the construction initiative due to local concerns. The ministry is reportedly hoping to offer economic benefits and incentives to the municipality to ease local opposition.
