The Japanese government is working on different scenarios to evacuate citizens in South Korea, including evacuating citizens home by sea from the southeastern port city of Busan should airports be closed.

There are about 57,000 Japanese citizens in South Korea at any one time, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday, when asked about tensions of a nuclear threat from North Korea:

“There is a possibility of further provocations, we need to remain extremely vigilant and do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people.  If the U.S. decided on a military strike against the North, the Japanese government would start moving toward an evacuation on its own accord regardless of whether the American plans are public.”

Japan’s proposed plan is comprised of four steps: seek to limit unessential travel to South Korea, discourage all travel to the South, advise Japanese citizens to evacuate and encourage them to shelter in place.

South Korea’s military conducted a live-fire exercise simulating an attack on a nuclear site, to “strongly warn” North Korea in response to the rogue nation’s apparent nuclear test, South Korean officials said early Monday.

In response to North Korea’s latest hydrogen bomb test, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Sunday afternoon that any threats by North Korea to the U.S. or its allies would be met with an “effective and overwhelming  military force, we are not looking to the total annihilation of a country … but … we have many options to do so.”

According to Fox News, the United Nations Security Council met Monday for an emergency meeting following the North’s recent provocations. U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley told the council that while “War is never something the United States wants … enough is enough.”

“We don’t want it now. But our country’s patience is not unlimited,” Haley said. “The United States will look at every country that does business with North Korea as a country, that is giving aid to their reckless and dangerous nuclear intentions.

The art of diplomacy and the heavy sanctions will never work on North Korea, though it is part of the necessary steps before a military conflict is green lighted.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said he was drafting a new sanctions package against the communist nation. The U.S. has already imposed economic sanctions on North Korea to stop the country’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon, in which the DPRK has blatantly ignored.

President Donald Trump responded to North Korea’s nuclear test:

North Korea is a rogue nation” and that “their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous. South Korea is realizing their “talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work.” Then added, “The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.”

It appears that  by the time the U.N. agrees to put a physical stop to North Korea’s nuclear threat, it will be far too late and North Korea will be a viable threat to the U.S. and its allies in the South Pacific.

God Bless.
