Japan should not connect missing persons with DPRK

The Japanese police recently announced that a man who had been missing was found at home. Police used to assert that they "could not rule out the possibility of his abduction by north Korea."

He went missing in 1974 and was found in Miyazaki Prefecture in November last year.

According to the survey findings, he was not abducted.

This shows the whole world once again how absurd the Japanese reactionaries' trite stories of abductions are.

Lurking behind Japan's story about the abduction issue is the sinister intention of tarnishing the DPRK's image and evading the responsibility for the past crimes.

However, it is a foolish act.

The real abduction state, the world's abduction kingpin, is none other than Japan.

The Imjin Patriotic War, which the Japanese themselves call "the man-hunting war and cultural assets-plundering war," and all sorts of abductions, which were perpetrated by Japan after it occupied Korea in the first half of the 20th century, clearly prove that Japan is the most vicious abduction state in history.

Japan must make an apology and reparation for the crimes against the Korean nation and stop linking the missing persons with the DPRK.

If Japan thinks it can shirk the responsibility for the past crimes by the foolish trick, it is sadly mistaken.

The Abe group should know that such a childish act will only make the DPRK people harden their will to force Japan to atone for its crimes in the past.
