PARIS, March 13 France recommended its citizens
leave the Tokyo region of Japan on Sunday, citing the risk of
further earthquakes and uncertainty about the situation at its
damaged nuclear plants.
"It seems reasonable to advise those who do not have a
particular reason to stay in the Tokyo region to leave the Kanto
(Tokyo) region for a few days," a statement on the French
embassy website in Japan said.
"We strongly advise our nationals not to travel to Japan and
we strongly recommend delaying any voyage planned," it added.
