U.S. to deploy F-22 fighter jets to Japan as part of Asia rebalance Updated: 2014-01-15 17:57:15 KST

Amid heightened tensions in Northeast Asia,
The United States is set to deploy more fighter jets and servicemen to Japan in mid-January, as part of a routine deployment.
The 5th Air Force said Monday that it will send twelve F-22 stealth fighter jets and about 3-hundred service personnel to Kadena Air Base in Okinawa to demonstrate Washington's commitment to stability and security in the region as part of its larger rebalance to Asia.
The move comes amid regional objections to China's expansion of its Air Defense Identification Zone and a dispute over an island chain in the East China Sea claimed by both Beijing and Toyko.
