Okinawa Gov Takeshi Onaga, left, shakes hands with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the start of their meeting at Abe's official residence in Tokyo on Friday. Abe held talks with Onaga over the construction of a new U.S. military base in an environmentally sensitive part of the island. In late March, Onaga ordered the Okinawa Defense Ministry branch to suspend all work in the area where a key U.S. military air base is to be relocated, in a growing confrontation between the island and the central government.© Japan Today
