Slovenian Embassy Staying in Tokyo

Ljubljana, 21 March (STA) - The Slovenian embassy in Japan will remain in Tokyo and is not moving to Osaka as indicated on Friday. The Foreign Ministry's assessment remains that the embassy is needed the most in Tokyo, where it can best help Slovenian nationals with information and logistics, the ministry stated on Monday.

Several embassies, among them Austria's and Croatia's, have relocated to Osaka due to fears that radiation from the damaged reactors at Fukushima Daiichi may reach Tokyo. A similar measure was announced on Friday by Slovenia's Foreign Minister Samuel Zbogar on his Twitter profile.
