Monday’s Mainichi reported that Foreign Minister Hayashi met with his Romanian counterpart Aurescu on Saturday and asked for Romania’s cooperation in evacuating the approximately 120 Japanese nationals who remain in Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion of Ukraine. Aurescu reportedly said Romania will “extend its utmost support.” The paper noted that Romania is a member of NATO and shares a border with Ukraine, adding that the GOJ is considering evacuating Japanese nationals via land since it could be difficult to evacuate them by air.
