NHK led with a story saying several U.S. media outlets have reported on a letter sent by mistake from the U.S. military to Iraq saying that the United States was repositioning forces for departure from the country. The network said Defense Secretary Esper held an emergency press conference to deny the report. NTV and TV Asahi gave top play to reports that Carlos Ghosn told a Fox Business program anchor last weekend that he has “actual evidence” that will prove his arrest was a “coup” by people including GOJ officials to take him down. Ghosn reportedly said he plans to disclose the names of those involved at a press conference in Lebanon on Jan. 8. TBS led with a report that according to the Financial Times, a former UK service member was involved in Ghosn’s escape. Fuji TV reported on a statement released by Nissan Motor today expressing regret for the Ghosn affair.
