Japan defense minister arriving this week

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Japan's defense minister is scheduled to visit various military installations during a visit to Guam on Wednesday.  Toshimi Katazawa's trip comes as Japan has not resolved a dispute over American military bases on Okinawa, specifically the relocation of the Futenma Air Base.

The defense minister is slated to meet with officials from the Joint Guam Program Office, the Navy and Air Force, as well as the governor and other elected leaders during tours of Andersen Air Force Base, Naval Base Guam, Apra Harbor and Finegayan - all locations that will see major changes with the impending military buildup.
