Abductees’ families likely to meet Suga ahead of his trip to U.S.

TBS reported early this morning that the families of the Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea will seek a meeting with Prime Minister Suga before he visits the U.S. next month to ask him to confirm stronger partnership with the Biden administration to bring back their loved ones. A video showed Sakie Yokota explaining her cause to a group of supporters yesterday: “I was told that Secretary Blinken was moved by the letter [calling for continued U.S. assistance that the families delivered to Chargé d’Affaires Young prior to the Secretary’s recent visit to Tokyo]. I’m glad our wishes were accepted.”
