US and Japan Agree on

the Return of Okinawa

In November, Premier Sato visited the United States. During the visit, an agreement was reached for the return of Okinawa to Japanese control (to be carried out in 1972). Under the terms of the agreement, the U.S. was to retain its rights to bases on the island, but these were to be nuclear-free.
