May 24 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Mike Firn reports on Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's decision to move a U.S. military base within Okinawa in adherence to a bilateral agreement. Hatoyama said security threats from countries such as North Korea trump local sentiment to shift it elsewhere. Hatoyama has "no choice" but to relocate the Futenma Marine Air Base on the island, he told Okinawa Governor Hirokazu Nakaima yesterday, abandoning a campaign pledge to move the Marines elsewhere. Bloomberg's Susan Li also speaks. (Source: Bloomberg)
