Abductees’ families concerned about Kishida Cabinet’s commitment to abductions 

Sankei wrote that although Prime Minister Kishida expressed his determination to resolve the issue of North Korea’s abductions of Japanese nationals by saying that it is his top foreign policy priority at his inaugural news conference on Monday as well as during his telephone conversation with the families of the abductees on Tuesday, there are concerns among the family members that the Kishida Cabinet lacks people like former Prime Ministers Abe and Suga who are well versed in the long-standing issue. Although Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno is in charge of the abduction issue, the families said that they have had no opportunity to meet with him in person.
