Commander of the US Forces in Japan Lt. Gen. Jerry P. Martinez said that dislocation of the US troops is unlikely to be changed under the presidency of Donald Trump.

TOKYO (Sputnik) — Dislocation of the US troops in Japan is unlikely to be changed amid the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, Commander of the US Forces in Japan Lt. Gen. Jerry P. Martinez said Thursday as quoted by local media.

Remarks made by Martinez to Kyodo News agency came against the backdrop of the statements made by Trump during the election campaign where he pledged to make countries such as Japan, Germany and South Korea pay for their alliance with the United States and their protection by the US troops present on their territories.
