Abductee's Brother Closely Watching Summit


Abductee's brother closely watching summit

The brother of a Japanese man abducted by North Korea says he hopes the ongoing summit succeeds so that it leads to the return of all abductees.

Kenichi Ichikawa on Tuesday watched closely the televised meeting of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

He is hoping that the summit will help pave the way for the return of his younger brother, Shuichi, and other Japanese abductees to the North.

Ichikawa said his family has lived in suffering for 40 years since Shuichi's abduction, during which his parents passed away without seeing their younger son again.

Ichikawa said he believes the Singapore summit is a chance in a million to resolve the abductions issue.
