TOKYO (Jiji Press) — All Japanese nationals willing to flee Niger, an African country hit by a military coup, have been evacuated to Paris, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said Thursday.
Two people fled Niger on Tuesday, while eight others were evacuated aboard a French flight in the early hours of Thursday.
“A very few number of Japanese nationals wanted to stay in Niger for certain reasons, and we’ll continue to make all-out efforts to ensure their safety,” Matsuno told a press conference.
