By Kyodo News 10 November 2020
TOKYO–Japan and the United States will launch formal negotiations later this week in Washington on a cost-sharing agreement for Tokyo’s hosting of US troops, the Japanese government said Tuesday.
With the current five-year deal expiring at the end of fiscal 2020 next March, the two sides need to agree on a new budget from April 2021 for hosting the around 55,000 US military personnel stationed in Japan under the bilateral security alliance.
