PACOM commander comments on NEO for possible Korea contingency, China

Asahi wrote that PACOM Commander Harris reportedly told a House Armed Services Committee hearing on Wednesday that PACOM is making efforts to draw up plans for noncombatant evacuation operations (NEO) for American citizens living in South Korea in preparation for a possible contingency on the Korean Peninsula. The paper wrote that the admiral, pointing out that there are more than 200,000 American civilians, 60,000 Japanese, and 1 million Chinese living in South Korea, reportedly stated that it would be useful for Japan and China to develop NEO plans. Yomiuri also reported on Adm. Harris’s remarks, quoting him as reportedly saying that China could soon militarily challenge the U.S. in almost every domain.
