GOJ preparing evacuation plans for Japanese nationals in South Korea

Saturday morning’s Nikkei reported that the Abe administration is drawing up contingency plans in preparation for a possible military conflict on the Korean Peninsula, focusing on how to evacuate the almost 57,000 Japanese citizens residing or travelling in South Korea. Information on an imminent contingency would be conveyed swiftly to encourage Japanese nationals to evacuate using chartered planes or ferries. Because the ROK government might be reluctant to allow SDF aircraft and vessels to be deployed for evacuation even under a military contingency, the GOJ may ask the U.S. military for cooperation in airlifting Japanese evacuees.
