Guthertz not surprised at Japan's settlement

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Senator Judi Guthertz says she's not surprised by Japan's buildup backdown.  Yesterday The Washington Post said Japan was moving to settle a dispute with the United States over the Okinawa base relocation by moving toward accepting parts of the 2006 deal to move the Futenma 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. Senator Guthertz says Japan has too much to risk by not cooperating with the U.S., saying it's time to get on with a buildup that's fair and reasonable for Guam. The controversy had raised questions about plans for the Guam end of the buildup.

She says the island now has to be ready and proactive.
