Japanese residents in ROK to be evacuated by ship via Tsushima in contingency

Today’s Yomiuri led with a GOJ idea to evacuate Japanese and American residents and tourists from South Korea in the event of a Korean Peninsula contingency via Tsushima Island by transporting them from Busan on U.S. Navy and MSDF warships. The evacuees would then be shuttled from Tsushima to ports in Kyushu. Since the ROK government is reportedly hesitant to host SDF vessels in Busan due to the Korean people’s aversion to the Japanese military, the GOJ plans to transport the evacuees by bringing MSDF vessels alongside U.S. warships, which are allowed to moor there.
