Guam - Japan has moved to settle a dispute with the United States over the Okinawa base relocation. According to The Washington Post, residents took part in a protest on Tokunoshima against a plan that is under consideration by the Japanese government to relocate the Futenma station to their island.

On Friday, the Japanese Government indicated that they would accept a plan to relocate the base. Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada presented U.S. Ambassador John Roos a propsoal to settle the dispute by moving toward accepting parts of the 2006 deal to move the station to a less populated part of Okinawa.

Some changes include altering the design of the runway and moving parts of the marine facility to an island about 100 miles away from Okinawa. Officials have said more details will be provided next week.
