The talks between Nakaima and Maehara came a day after senior government officials held informal talks to settle differences in opinion on whether to kick the facility out of Okinawa or keep it in the prefecture.Relocation outside the prefecture, as sought by the DPJ, would contradict the 2006 Japan-U.S. accord, which states that the heliport functions of Futenma air station in downtown Ginowan will be moved to Camp Schwab in the city of Nago, also in Okinawa, by 2014.
