Okinawa Times reported that former senior USG official Morton Halperin, who was involved in the negotiations on Okinawa’s reversion, told the paper on Sunday that the prefecture’s base-hosting burden remains unchanged even after 50 years and said: “I strongly urge the governments of Japan and the United States to drastically review the SOFA and call off the Futenma relocation plan.” The paper said that from 1966 to 1969 Halperin played a key role in the negotiations on Okinawa’s reversion.
