Japan, U.S. agree on new deal for supporting American troops

Date Posted: 2007-12-17

It didnít work the way the Japanese government really wanted, but an agreement has been hammered out on covering costs of stationing U.S. troops in Japan.
The Japanese government had wanted the cut its costs, with the U.S. picking up a larger share of the stationing costs next fiscal year, but its withdrawal from the Indian Ocean fueling support program left Japan in a weaker negotiating position. Instead of winning major concessions from the U.S., Japan agreed to keep salaries, training and transportation spending for workers on military bases the same as this year.
A •400 million reduction in utilities costs was agreed to by the two governments, but virtually everything else remains the same as in the 2007 budget. Japanese workers on American bases will remain at the same level as this year, 23,055. The new agreement spans three years.
