Hudson Institute, the Government of Japan, and the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) will host a seminar addressing the abduction of Japanese, South Korean, American and nationals of other countries by North Korea. This two-part seminar will feature families of abductees who will discuss the process of seeking to learn the fate of loved ones held in North Korea. The seminar will also explore international cooperation toward the comprehensive resolution of outstanding issues of concern such as abductions, nuclear, and missile issues.

For part one, we have speakers from Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United States, including abductee family members, to talk about their agony. For part two, Japanese and U.S. officials will give remarks regarding their work on the abductions issue and will include a question and answer session with the audience.

This event will include simultaneous translations.
