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.

sounds like the same rheoteric that spews from American lawmakers when it comes to UFO's, alot of nervous laughter and back pedaling. all politicians are the same.

I think you all need to change your terminology from "UFO" to "alien".
A UFO is an Unidentified Flying Object. Of course they exist, especially if you don't know what this flying object happens to be. Aliens are completely another matter...
