Japan Coast Guard to 'eliminate' Chinese drones

Dozens of drones to be replaced by other models due to security concerns

A part of the Japanese government has joined the U.S. in an effort to procure only drones made by non-Chinese companies.

TOKYO -- The Japan Coast Guard plans to stop using and procuring Chinese-made drones in fiscal 2020 due to concerns over information security, Nikkei has learned. It will be the second case in which Chinese products are barred from consideration by Japanese government procurement programs.
