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

For part one, speakers from Japan, the Republic of Korea and the United States, including abductee family members, talked about their agony. For part two, Japanese and U.S. officials gave remarks regarding their work on the abductions issue and included a question and answer session with the audience.
