Noda, Clinton agree on steady progress in force realignment

Date Posted: 2012-07-12

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton say they will steadily implement measures to realign U.S. forces in Japan.

At a meeting in Tokyo, Noda told Clinton that his talks with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington at the end of April bore fruits, including the announcement of a common vision for the future of the Japan-U.S. alliance. Noda then expressed his eagerness to follow through on commitments he made with Obama, according to Japanese officials with access to the day's Noda-Clinton talks.

After the summit meeting Noda and Clinton issued a joint statement highlighting, among others, the significance of modified plans for the U.S. forces' realignment, which call for separate handling of the relocation of the Marine Corps' Futenma Air Station and transfer of Marines from Okinawa to Guam and other locations. Noda also told Clinton of Tokyo's intention to cooperate with Washington in developing the economy and restoring public safety in Afghanistan.

Clinton, who was in Tokyo to attend an international conference to support the development of Afghanistan, noted that the United States highly values Japan's leadership.
