Japanese Morning Press Highlights 06/26/09

On June 25, 2009, Katsuya Okada met with Michele Flournoy, the Under Secretary of Defense at the DPJ party headquarters. During the meeting, Flournoy said that if the existing plan to relocated Marine Corps Air Station Futenma within Okinawa was abandoned, the alliance between America and Japan would be seriously damaged. Okada said he opposed the existing relocation plan and he also had one other interesting thing to say.

“The present relations between Japan and the United States are plagued by the past,” said Okada.
