Tokyo tells planes to report to US military if near US base

Tokyo tells planes to report to US military if near US base

Japan has ordered aircraft to report to the US military first if they enter airspace near the main US military base in Okinawa, a report said early Saturday after fresh North Korean threats.

The transport ministry notice issued late Friday was believed to be part of precautions against possible North Korean missile launches, Kyodo News agency reported.

The order refers to airspace within 30 kilometres of the Kadena base where Patriot missiles have been deployed.

It comes after North Korea threatened that Japan would be ‘consumed in nuclear flames’ if it got involved in any conflict on the Korean peninsula,

Japan, the only country ever to have suffered a nuclear attack, has authorised its armed forces to shoot down any North Korean missile headed towards its territory.

This week Patriot missile batteries were stationed around Tokyo to protect the 30 million people who live there.
