Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo is back in the nation's capitol after participating in the 44th U.S. Japan Legislative Exchange Program in Tokyo. While there she met with several members of the National Diet, which is the lawmaking body of the Japanese government, to discuss issues related to national security and economic policy. 

During her meetings, Bordallo raised issues relating to the military build-up and was reassured that the Japanese government is committed to carrying out the terms of the so-called "Guam International Agreement" signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Japanese Foreign Minister Hirofumi Nakasone in February 2009. 

Bordallo says during her meetings she received assurances that Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan and his government are working to resolve build-up related issues internally but that they are fully committed to the terms of the Guam International Agreement.
