UFOs have been the subject of countless movies and television production. I guess the majority of people would say that there is a possibility that we are not alone. Personally, I think it’s highly unlikely that noone or nothing else is out there. Considering the theory that our universe is infinite, I think it’s only a matter of time. Well the Japanese government agrees and does believe that UFOs are real:
Yes, UFOs do exist, Japanâ€™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 lawmakerâ€™s question, issued a statement saying it could not confirm any cases of unidentified flying objects.
â€œThis is an issue that the nation is interested in â€” it is a defence issue and a confirmation operation needs to take place,â€ Ryuji Yamane, a lawmaker from the main opposition Democratic Party who submitted the question to the cabinet, told Reuters.
â€œBut the government does not even try to collect information necessary for the confirmation.â€
Machimura, asked about the governmentâ€™s view on UFOs at a regular press conference, told reporters that the government can only offer a stereotyped response.
â€œPersonally, I definitely believe they exist,â€ he said, apparently tongue in cheek.
But the prime minister stuck to the official view.
â€œI have yet to confirm (that UFOs exist),â€ Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda told reporters later in the day.
