Japan to evacuate its citizens on Korean Peninsula in coordination with U.S.-led coalition

Sankei said in its lead story that the GOJ envisages that if Japanese citizens in South Korea need to be evacuated during a contingency on the Korean Peninsula, such operations would be carried out in coordination with the U.S., Australia, Canada, and other friendly nations. Given that the South Korean public would probably react strongly if SDF planes were mobilized for noncombatant evacuation operations under a bilateral arrangement, the GOJ has come to believe that ROK opposition to the SDF deployment could be mitigated if it were done under a multilateral framework involving the U.S. and other Western countries.
