PACOM commander says U.S. preparing for non-combatant evacuation operations

Saturday morning’s Yomiuri reported that PACOM Commander Harris said during a congressional hearing on Wednesday that although the Trump administration prioritizes resolving the North Korea issue through diplomatic means by maximizing pressure, the U.S. is also preparing for non-combatant evacuation operations (NEO), which would be essential in the event of a contingency on the Korean Peninsula. According to the paper, Adm. Harris reportedly said the U.S. Army, Pacific, and others are currently confirming or making adjustments to the evacuation plan. The admiral also reportedly expressed the view that the U.S. will work closely with U.S. allies, saying: “Should a war begin on the Korean Peninsula, the evacuation of non-combatants will also be important for our friends, allies, and partners.”
