Clinton to meet Japan FM, discuss base issue

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada in Hawaii on Jan. 12 and is likely to discuss a dispute over relocating a U.S. airbase, a State Department official said on Thursday.

"It will be a wide-ranging discussion," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters, adding that he expected the issue of relocating the U.S. Marines' Futenma airbase in Okinawa would come up.
