Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo says had discussions with the under secretary of defense just a few days ago confirming discussions are underway between Washington and Japan, but we'll all have to wait and see what the final outcome will be.

"One thing is for certain we are having a Marine - military buildup here on Guam, now as to what degree, how they will be deployed here and over what period of time will this transition occur. I think its all important for us not to keep on speculating, everyday there is a new rumor in the rumor mill, I think its important just to wait for things to happen and have these discussions and dialogue with those pertinent individuals, such as the secretary of defense and principle under secretary of defense," he said.

DOD is expected to make an announcement on the buildup, next week.
