North Korean radio program says abduction issue is “already settled”

Saturday morning’s Nikkei and Sankei reported that according to the Tokyo-based Radio Press news agency, North Korea’s Pyongyang Broadcasting Station aired a commentary on Japan on Friday saying that the issue of the abductions of Japanese nationals has already been settled. “Japan continues to raise the abduction issue, which has already been resolved, and plans to obtain benefits for itself,” the program said. This was the first time for the DPRK media to mention the issue since President Trump raised it during the summit with Kim Jong Un.
