Japan's Kagoshima Gov. Opposes Transfer of U.S. Drills without Local Approval
Pyongyang, July 29 (KCNA) -- The governor of Kagoshima Prefecture of Japan on July 25 strongly protested the authorities' unilateral behavior.

The governor lodged a protest against the central government bypassing the local government without adequate explanations to it in designating Mage Island in the prefecture as a candidate site for the relocation of U.S. carrier-borne aircraft-landing drills in an accord with the United States.

The central government should respect the locals' wishes more than anything, he noted.
