    With the start of construction for land reclamation on the shores of the Henoko area of Nago in Okinawa, persistent resistance from Okinawans is strengthening with more legal action being undertaken by Governor Takeshi Onaga to stop the construction. These could further undermine the US presence in Okinawa as well as the US-Japan alliance. Taking into account these circumstances, for the past three years, New Diplomacy Initiative (ND) has hosted study sessions for diplomacy, defense, and security experts to analyze and research the military role of the US Marines in Okinawa and the state of “deterrence.”

     

    The ND members will hold the event on “A New Vision for Okinawa and Asia-Pacific Security – A Recommendation from the New Diplomacy Initiative (ND)” and introduce this report that compiles a counterargument against the assertion that Henoko is the only option for the Futenma relocation. It will be held on July 12 (Wed) from 2:00pm at East-West Center in Washington.
