Japanese abductees’ family members to visit U.S.

Fuji TV reported at noon that amid growing tension over North Korea, a group of family members of the Japanese nationals who were abducted by North Korea left Narita Airport for the U.S. this morning. Takuya Yokota, the younger brother of abductee Megumi Yokota, told reporters before their departure: “Not only Japan but the entire world feels the threat of North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. The human rights issue, the abduction issue, remains unresolved. We will visit and meet with key figures in the U.S. to tell them that these issues must not be left unresolved.”
