General skips answering vice governorís military comments

Date Posted: 2005-06-17

The vice governor told the outgoing commander of Marine Corps Bases Okinawa there were concerns about the relationships, but the general made no response.

Brigadier General James Flock, who is leaving the Camp Butler position for a new post at the Pentagonís Installations and Logistics Office, was making a courtesy call to Vice Governor Hirotaka Makino at his Prefecture Office. Makino told him "We are fully aware of the roles of the US Military bases in Okinawa under the Japan-US Security Treaty. The necessary conditions (to fulfill that role) are solution of base issues satisfactory to the residents, and stability of society, politics, and economy of Okinawa."

Flock did not respond to Makinoís comment, or to another regarding safety concerns over a new Army Training Range Complex. Makino had asked Flock not to use the facility, saying "I think you are fully aware of the danger. I want your consideration over the issue."

The generalís comment to Makino was that "There are various problems in the world, including the ones such as the situation of North Korea. What is important is to work together aiming at solving these problems."
