North Korean Missles?

The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo is transmitting the following information through the Embassy's warden system as a public service to all U.S. citizens in Japan. Please disseminate this message to U.S. citizens in your organizations or to other Americans you know.

North Korea has announced that it will attempt a rocket launch between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on one of the days during April 4-8, 2009 from a site in northeast North Korea. This possible event has received much media attention. The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo is monitoring the situation. The Japanese government has announced that it is highly unlikely that parts of the North Korean missile could fall on Japan and so people should continue daily activities as usual.

The Embassy will continue to monitor the situation. The United States is engaged in discussions with the Japanese government about this issue. We will continue to apprise the American citizen community of any important information via this email system and the Embassy websites at http://tokyo.usembassy.gov/ and http://tokyo.usembassy.gov/e/acs/tacs-arch.html.
