GOJ to provide training to schoolteachers on abduction issue

Monday morning’s Nikkei reported that a GOJ source disclosed on Sunday that the government has decided to start from this fall providing training to elementary, middle, and high school teachers on the issue of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea. The paper said the GOJ made the decision in light of the results of an opinion survey conducted last fall by the Cabinet Office, which found that young people are not very interested in the abduction issue. The paper said the move is also aimed at demonstrating to North Korea Japan’s determination not to forget the abduction issue.
