Marking 20th Anniversary of Movements to Rescue Abductees
Two decades have passed since the Association of the Families of Victims Kidnapped by North Korea (AFVKN) and the National Association for the Rescue of Japanese Kidnapped by North Korea (NARKN) launched movements to rescue Japanese citizens kidnapped by North Korea. Four decades have passed since the first of identified Japanese abductees were kidnapped. However, only five of the 17 identified have been rescued. In addition to these identified abductees, there are most surely more Japanese citizens who have been kidnapped by North Korea. The total number of Japanese abductees remains unknown. Why is the situation so miserable regarding the North Korean abduction?
