Guam briefing held on Capitol Hill

by Nick Delgado

Guam – The House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, and the National Bureau of Asian Research hosted a briefing titled, "Guam and U.S. Strategy in the Asia-Pacific" on Capitol Hill.

Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo gave brief remarks stating Guam plays pivotal roles in the  United States' re-focus in our region. Bordallo spoke on the military realignment from Okinawa to  Guam, and how the time to realign our forces has come. She adds, "Unfortunately, I believe those  that are holding back on allowing the Department of Defense to spend Government of Japan and  U.S. military construction funds are simply unconvinced that realignments in the region are
necessary."

The Guam Delegate says once we can get on with the realignment and begin to reduce the  burden in Okinawa, then we can begin to shift our attention to other security matters in our  region. She states if the realignment does not move forward, then we risk a more serious impact to our critical bilateral relations with the Japan government.
