Japan's top government spokesman says UFOs exist
Asked about the government's view on UFOs, he told reporters that the government can only offer a stereotyped response. "Personally, I definitely believe they exist," he said, apparently tongue in cheek.
Yes, UFOs do exist, Japan's top government spokesman said on Tuesday.
The comment by chief cabinet secretary Nobutaka Machimura drew laughter from reporters at his regular briefing on government policy.
Earlier the cabinet, responding to an opposition lawmaker's question, issued a statement saying it could not confirm any cases of unidentified flying objects.
"This is an issue that the nation is interested in -- it is a defence issue and a confirmation operation needs to take place," Ryuji Yamane, a lawmaker from the main opposition Democratic Party who submitted the question to the cabinet, told Reuters.
"But the government does not even try to collect information necessary for the confirmation."
Machimura, asked about the government's view on UFOs at a regular press conference, told reporters that the government can only offer a stereotyped response.
"Personally, I definitely believe they exist," he said, apparently tongue in cheek.
"Eternal vigilance is required and there have to be people who step up to the plate, who believe in liberty, and who are willing to fight for it."

You're going to hell with fire and brimstone if you don't get on board with the plan.“After seven years of an Administration that has stretched our military to the breaking point, ignored deplorable conditions at some VA hospitals, and neglected the planning and preparation necessary to care for our returning heroes, America’s veterans deserve a President who will fight for them not just when it’s easy or convenient, but every hour of every day for the next four years.”
