Bordallo meets with Japanese official

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo met with Japan's parliamentary senior vice minister of defense Akinori Eto this week  to discuss progress on the realignment of U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam. Bordallo says Eto reaffirmed the Abe Administration's commitment to the realignment.  The two also discussed enhanced training opportunities between U.S. forces and Japanese Self Defense Forces on Mainland Japan and in the Marianas. Bordallo added that given continued Senate  obstruction to the build-up, this was an important meeting in reaffirming the importance of this  realignment to security interests in the region as well as the strong friendship between the United States and Japan.
