President Trump to meet with abductees’ families in Japan

NHK reported at noon that Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Nogami told reporters today that President Trump will visit Japan from Nov. 5 to 7, saying that in addition to a bilateral summit, the President will meet with the families of the Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea together with Prime Minister Abe. Nogami was quoted as saying: “President Trump’s visit to Japan will present a perfect opportunity for the leaders to discuss the issues faced by the international community amid the increasingly tough security situation in the region, including North Korea, and to once again demonstrate to the world the strong ties of the U.S.-Japan alliance. The government of Japan wholeheartedly welcomes the President’s visit to Japan.” On his meeting with the families of the abductees, Nogami reportedly said: “The abduction issue is one of the most important issues for the Japanese government. It is extremely significant that the issue will be discussed at the Japan-U.S. summit.”
