UFO believers will be interested in this bit of news from Japan.
Japan's air force has never spotted a UFO, but the country's top government spokesman said Tuesday he "definitely" believes they exist.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura was speaking to reporters in response to demands lodged by an opposition lawmaker for an inquiry into "frequent reports of UFO sightings."
The government said in an official reply that it had "not confirmed sightings of unidentified flying objects believed to be from outer space."
Still, "I definitely believe they exist," Machimura said as reporters erupted in laughter.
No confirmed UFO sightings yet the government official believes they exist. It’s easy to understand why the reporters erupted in laughter.
