Whether it is because of Abe's shift to a newly militaristic doctrine or simply its proximity to a more sabre-rattling China is unclear, but Britain's Foreign Office just added Japan to its list of "dangerous" or "partially dangerous" countries.
As ValueWalk's Vikas Shukla notes, the list of “high risk” countries includes Syria, Yemen, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Libya, Burundi, Chad, Central African Republic, Guinea, Somaliland, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Niger, Mauritania, and the Palestinian territories.
Japan among partially dangerous countries
Then there are 45 countries that are partially dangerous. Surprisingly, Japan has been included in this list. Parts of Russia, including areas of Chechnya and regions near the border with Ukraine, are also deemed dangerous. Here’s the full list of 45 “partially dangerous” countries.
- Burkina Faso
- Burma (Myanmar)
- Ivory Coast
- Republic of Congo
- Saudi Arabia
If you have already booked tickets to any of these countries, you may want to reconsider it.
