Abductees’ families welcome President Trump’s plan to meet with them

According to Sankei, family members of the Japanese abductees felt encouraged by Prime Minister Abe’s announcement on Tuesday that President Trump will meet with them when he visits Tokyo later this month. They reportedly voiced strong hope for continued support from the U.S. leader for repatriating their loved ones. Sakie Yokota, the mother of Megumi Yokota, reportedly told the press: “Members of the international community needs to coordinate to resolve the abductions. I would like to convey to the President our strong wish to bring the victims home immediately. I want to hear the President’s thoughts on the matter. North Korea will have a bright future if Kim Jong Un decides to settle the abduction issue. Japan and the United States should take the lead in pressing North Korea to take the right path.”
