Guam - While talks continue in Tokyo between the U.S. and Japan, Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda personally apologized to the people of Okinawa over his government's reported insincere attitude over the controversial Futenma issue. Although Noda plans to stick with the long stalled agreement of moving the air base to a less populated area in Okinawa, he apologized for handling of the situation. In addressing Okinawan Governor Hirokazu Nakaima Noda stated "we have to see progress this year in developing okinawa and reducing your burden" of hosting us troops." The U.S. and Japan reportedly hope to have a final revised plan on the 2006 realignment roadmap by May.
