President Trump to meet with abductees’ families during Japan visit

Yomiuri front-paged a report saying that it has learned from several sources connected to U.S.-Japan relations that arrangements are being made for President Trump to meet with the families of the Japanese abductees, including the parents of Megumi Yokota, during his scheduled trip to Japan in November. The paper speculated that the President plans to ratchet up the pressure on North Korea over its human rights violations by expressing his full support for Japan in resolving the abduction issue. The paper also wrote that the U.S. and Japanese governments are making arrangements for the President to visit Japan either on Nov. 4-7 or Nov. 5-7 and exploring the possibility of arranging a meeting with the abductees’ families during that period while taking into consideration the health condition of the Yokotas.
