As Japanese Eases Sanctions On North Korea, PM Demands Answers For Abduction

share on:

As Japan on Friday made moves to ease several of its sanctions on North Korea following talks the two countries made this week about Japanese citizens kidnapped by the North Korean regime during the Cold War, PM still demand answers for abduction.

According to the Japanese government, North Korean operatives abducted at least 17 Japanese people in the late 1970s and early 1980s, possibly dozens more.

The sanctions being lifted by Japan and which includes an entry ban on North Korean citizens, an embargo on North Korean ships in Japanese ports and a requirement for reporting movements of money to North Korea, came after the regime in Pyongyang agreed this week to reopen investigations into the decades-old cases of the kidnap victims following talks between the two sides in Beijing.
