Abe rejected North Korean offer to return abductees

Japan under then-Prime Minister Shinzo Abe rejected a North Korean offer to return two Japanese men, including a victim of kidnappings by Pyongyang, around 2014 and 2015, sources involved in the negotiations have revealed.

Tokyo has rejected Pyongyang’s proposal, fearing the nuclear-armed country is trying to end the long-running problem of kidnappings of Japanese nationals by North Korea in the 1970s and 1980s, the sources said on Friday. .
