Japan drops plan to send Ukraine refugees aid supplies via India

Military planes to load goods in UAE after Tokyo said India refused landings

Under a revised plan, the Japanese government says SDF C2 transport planes will deliver blankets and other humanitarian aid, via the United Arab Emirates, to Ukrainian refugees.

TOKYO -- The Japanese government on Tuesday presented the ruling Liberal Democratic Party with a redrawn plan that omits India in transporting humanitarian aid supplies to Ukrainian refugees aboard Self-Defense Forces aircraft.

Japan will transport supplies solely from the United Arab Emirates instead of also loading them in India, according to the revised plan, which was presented to a joint meeting of the LDP's diplomatic and other working groups concerned.
