Japan lodged a protest with the Myanmar military government after security personnel forcibly entered the homes of Japanese Embassy and aid staff in Yangon in April and has demanded steps to prevent a recurrence, the government’s top spokesman said Monday.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said at a news conference that while the staff were not harmed, the security forces’ actions “risked the safety of the Japanese nationals” and violated the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
