South Korean Foreign Ministry has sent text message notifications to its citizens currently visiting Japan to avoid places where there may be protests against South Korea amid escalating diplomatic tensions between the two countries.

“We are closely watching any moves where anti-Korean rallies by far-right groups in Japan are likely to occur and we are considering taking the necessary measures, including the provision of services, help the consular post of the ministry or send additional letters to our citizens there”. a ministry official said in remarks broadcast by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency on Monday.

Tensions between Seoul and Tokyo escalated when Japan imposed restrictions on its exports to South Korea last month. Seoul interpreted the restrictions as a retaliation for South Korean court decisions ordering Japanese companies to compensate victims of forced Korean labor in wartime.
