Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said Tuesday the ongoing temporary deployment of the U.S. military’s advanced stealth F-22 fighter jets to a base in Okinawa is a move that will benefit the Japan-U.S. alliance.

“As the Defense Ministry, we believe this will contribute to the strengthening of the deterrence force of the Japan-U.S. alliance as well as to the safety of our country and the Indo-Pacific region,” Onodera told reporters.
