A senior Japanese government official has said that he believed in UFOs. “Personally, I absolutely believe they exist,” said Nobutaka Machimura, the chief cabinet secretary.
He added there was no other explanation for how the Nazca Lines were drawn in the Peruvian desert.
Mr Machimura’s comments followed a government rebuttal that it had official knowledge of UFOs.
“The government has not confirmed the existence of ’unidentified flying objects believed to have flown from outside the Earth’,” it said in response to a question from an opposition politician.
Questioned later on the issue, the prime minister, Yasuo Fukuda, stuck to the official line. “I have yet to confirm (that UFOs exist),” he replied. telegrhaph
I like this kind of comment.
