The Ginowan Municipal Assembly decided Friday to send letters to U.S. military forces in Okinawa Prefecture and Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi protesting U.S. military training flights, according to council officials.

During an extraordinary session, the assembly unanimously adopted a resolution calling on U.S. forces to immediately terminate practice flights over the city’s residential areas. The resolution also calls for the early handover of the Futenma Air Station in Ginowan.
