September 17, 2012, Tokyo, Japan - U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, right, and his Japanese counterpart Satoshi Morimoto shake hands following a joint news conference at the Defense Ministry in Tokyo on Monday, Septembeyr 17, 2012. U.S. and Japan have agreed to put a second defense system in Japan aimed at protecting Japan and the U.S. homeland from the North korean threat. Panetta is on his third trip to Asia in 11 months, reflecting the Pentagon's ongoing shift to put more military focus on the Asia-Pacific. His visit to Japan also included discussions with Morimoto about the deployment of MV-22 Ospreys to the southwestern island of Okinawa, where people have protested the hybrid aircraft's planned use, saying they are unsafe.
