Sakie Yokota “I’m very sorry for this result”

Ms. Sakie, 84, the mother of Megumi Yokota, who was abducted by North Korea when she was in her first year of junior high school, said, “I was watching Prime Minister Abe on TV and I was wondering if he would be okay. I’m very sorry for this result, but I think it’s no use being sick.”

On that basis, he said, “I would like the next Prime Minister to continue to work with the same feelings as our victims’ families. North Korea seems to be having a hard time right now, so I hope the abduction issue will be resolved and both Japan and North Korea will be happy.”

Megumi Yokota’s younger brother Takuya

Takuya, the younger brother of Megumi Yokota, who was abducted by North Korea when she was in her first year of junior high school, told internetnews.unsoly, “To be honest, I was surprised because it was a sudden resignation. I felt that I was the Prime Minister with a strong belief in solving the abduction problem, so I am sorry that the solution was not completed.”

“My mother is 84 years old and other family members have been waiting for their parents to return for more than 40 years. After this, if it is reset as if nothing had happened and it becomes a situation of “redo from 1″, the victim in North Korea and our family will not be able to endure it. I hope that the next Prime Minister will take the initiative to ensure that all victims return home as soon as possible.”

Shigeo Iizuka, President of the Family Association of Abduction Victims

Shigeo Iizuka, the family association representative of the North Korean abductee and the older brother of Yaeko Taguchi, told internetnews.un, “I’m surprised at the news of her sudden resignation, but I don’t think I can help it if I’m in bad shape. Prime Minister Abe has positioned the abduction issue as the most important issue of the administration, but the families of the victims are aging and I want them to take responsibility for the return of all victims, no matter who becomes the next prime minister.”

Koichiro Iizuka, the eldest son of Yaeko Taguchi

Koichiro Iizuka, the eldest son of Yaeko Taguchi, said, “I am grateful for your efforts to solve the abduction problem. However, it is a disappointment that the remaining abductees did not return home.”

Hitomi Soga “I’m sorry I wanted to fight with you”

The abductee, Hitomi Soga, made a comment through Sado City, Niigata Prefecture.

Mr. Soga said, “I would like to express my gratitude to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for his efforts to solve the abduction problem before and after our return to Japan. We haven’t come back yet, so we wanted to fight together until then. I’m sorry, but my body is important, so I want you to concentrate on treatment.”

On top of that, he said, “Solving the abduction problem is a battle against time. After this, no matter who becomes Prime Minister, I hope that everyone will continue to work until they return home.”

Mr. and Mrs. Jimura’s husband and wife “Great efforts to return to Japan”

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Prime Minister Abe for all his efforts to resolve the abduction issue as the most important issue of the administration. The government and the people will continue to work together to develop a strong campaign for a solution, and to ensure that the abduction problem is resolved by our generation.”

Keiko Arimoto’s father, Akihiro

Akihiro Arimoto’s father, Akihiro, 92, an abductee from Kobe City, said, He worked the abduction issue the most. If I had deepened my relationship with the United States and worked on it a little longer during my tenure, I might have had a good result, but I can’t beat my illness. I would like my successors to work the abduction issue.

Kyoko Matsumoto’s older brother, Tossa

Kyoko Matsumoto’s older brother, Kyoko Matsumoto, abductee of Yonago City, Tottori Prefecture, said, “I wanted Prime Minister Abe to solve the abduction problem, but I’m sorry that I couldn’t help it. However, I am grateful that they are working hard to solve the problem, such as to make the problem widely known throughout the country. I want the next Prime Minister to work to realize the return of the victims as soon as possible while the remaining victims’ families are healthy.”

Shuichi Ichikawa’s older brother, Kenichi Ichikawa

Kenichi Ichikawa, the older brother of Shuichi Ichikawa, an abductee in Kagoshima Prefecture, said, “I can’t hide my surprise at the sudden announcement. I’m sorry to be resigned in the middle of the road because he was working earnestly on the abduction issue, but I want you to take care of yourself because your health is number one. I would like the next Prime Minister to take over the will of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has repeatedly called for an early resolution, and fight with the families of the abductees.”

Chairman Ozu “I’m surprised at your intention to resign”

Shigeru Omoto, chairman of the government’s subcommittee on the new coronavirus and also present at Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s press conference, said, “I met you at a government meeting yesterday. I’ve heard that he’s not feeling well, but I wasn’t impressed by his voice and the way he went in and out of the room, so I was very surprised to learn that he was going to resign. I understand that at today’s Prime Minister’s Meeting, you will be able to talk about the direction of the new measures in light of the progress of the Corona Virus antivirus. Now is an important time for the Corona Virus antivirus, so I would like the government to immediately establish a system in which it can demonstrate solid leadership.”

JoC Chairman Yasuhiro Yamashita

On Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s decision to resign, Yasuhiro Yamashita, chairman of the JOC-Japan Olympic Committee, said, “I’m sorry to learn about it on the news. It remains to be said how this will affect the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, which have been postponed to next year, but it is a national project that has raised the country and I don’t think the basic policy will change. I really felt Prime Minister Abe’s enthusiasm, so I’d like to inherit my will and do my best to hold the tournament even if the form changes.”

Chairman Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, Government Regulatory Reform Promotion Council

Yoshimitsu Kobayashi, chairman of the government’s Regulatory Reform Promotion Council, said, “During that time, he served as a long-term government for seven years and eight months, during which time he made significant achievements in Abenomics, such as correcting the yen’s appreciation and establishing economic partnerships such as the TPP. I was impressed by the vigorous sense of crisis in Japan’s transformation. I was very sorry that we thought that we would be able to discuss Japan’s growth strategy in the future.”

Keidanren Chairman Nakanishi

Keidanren Chairman Nakanishi announced his comments, commenting, “I am very surprised and deeply sorry. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made significant achievements in all areas of national politics, including the execution of Abenomics, the development of global diplomacy, and the strengthening of security policies during his longest tenure in the history of constitutional politics.”

On that basis, he said, “Japan has many important issues, such as balancing the response to infectious diseases with the recovery of the economy, responding to the tumulling international situation, and reviewing energy policy. I strongly hope that the next Prime Minister and President will be elected as soon as possible to continue and strongly advance various policies.”

Former Chairman of Keidanren Mitarai

The former chairman and president of Canon, Yoshio Mitarai, said, “The Japanese economy, which had been damaged by the Lehman shock and the Great East Japan Earthquake, has been successfully revived by Abenomics, achieved a sustained economic recovery, and the employment environment has improved significantly. He also demonstrated his strong diplomatic power in terms of diplomacy, actively promoting a wide range of diplomacy based on Japan-U.S. relations, and enhancing Japan’s presence in the international community to an unprecedented position. First of all, I would like Prime Minister Abe to devote himself to peace, pray for the recovery of his physical strength as soon as possible, and continue to lead the national government in the future as an experienced Prime Minister. I hope that the next prime minister will take over the Abe administration’s policies focused on economic growth, employment, and youth.”

Mr. Shibata, Representative Secretary, Keizai Doyukai

Mr. Shibata, the secretary of the Keizai Doyukai, said, “I am very surprised at the sudden resignation. I would like to express my respect for his strong leadership in domestic affairs and diplomacy, including challenging economic growth, raising the consumption tax rate, and successfully attracting the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics during his long tenure as the longest in the history of constitutional government. I am very sorry to resign due to my deteriorating physical condition, but I would like you to try to recover your physical condition as soon as possible. In addition to the many challenges, Japan must accurately address the challenges of overcoming the new coronavirus and build a new normal economic society. I hope that a new Cabinet that will be trusted by the people will be established as soon as possible.”

Chairman of the Union, Kozu

At a press conference, Kanzu, the president of the coalition, said, “It is true that there have been considerable questions about the politics and policies of the Abe administration, and unfortunately the negatives have become bigger.”

On the other hand, he said, “I would like to frankly evaluate the realization of laws and guidelines by correcting long working hours and equal pay for equal work due to work style reform. In the next administration, I would like the framework of the political and labor conference to be revived.”

Mr. Takashi Ming, a political scientist

Takashi Ming, a political scientist and professor emeritus at the University of Tokyo, said, “I have been Prime Minister for such a long time, and I should have to decorate my beauty, but since my last resignation, I have not learned anything.Couldn’t. We’ve always been working on new challenges, but the response to the new coronavirus has stopped all economic and diplomatic efforts. I think it takes a lot of physical strength to cope with the challenges of the new coronavirus, which we can’t see ahead of me, but I think it’s gone.”

Chairman toshiyuki Onodera, JA Hokkaido Central Association

Toshiyuki Onodera, president of the JA Hokkaido Central Association, said at a regular press conference today, “The change of prime minister in the middle of the new coronavirus countermeasures is a huge blow to us and agricultural organizations. I personally believe that the measures for agriculture will not change significantly even if the prime minister is substituted. I would like to continue to ask the government for assistance.”

a federation formed by former islanders in the Northern Territories

Mr. Ryochinomuro Miyatani, head of the “Chishima Toothmai Islands Residents’ Federation”, which is made by former islanders of the Northern Territories, said, “I am surprised and sorry for the news of his resignation because he was working hard to solve the Northern Territories problem.”

On that basis, he said, “It is not a sorry for us to resign while the territorial issue remains at a footing. I hope that the next prime minister will actively negotiate 44 and create a new system that will freely travel to the former islanders.”

Kunihiko Miyaya, former diplomat

Kunihiko Miyaya, a former diplomat and head of research at the Canon Institute for Global Strategy, said, “The Abe administration has done a politically costly job of changing security policies in line with the current situation as the environment in East Asia changes dramatically. It is a result of actively promoting diplomacy to Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, etc., which will not be reached by a government that will be replaced in a year or two. I am very sorry to resign while the policy is moving.”

On the other hand, on the issues of diplomacy and security, he said, “The biggest concern is the issue of the Korean Peninsula. Relations with Moon Jae-in’s government have been difficult, and problems have surfaced in the last few years of the administration.”

“The Abe administration has certainly advanced its policies, but of course there are some who oppose it, but homework has been left on how to obtain a national consensus. It is a matter that the successor Prime Minister and President must take responsibility for.”

Nonfiction writer Masayasu Hosaka

Regarding the Abe administration, Masayasu Hosaka, a nonfiction writer familiar with modern and contemporary Japanese history, said, “It was the longest-term administration in Japan since modern times, but negotiations with Russia did not solve the problem of post-war processing, and the abduction issue did not take much positive form. If such a problem is taken up one by one, I do not think that it has fruited as a form. However, since the longest administration had the support of the people, the role played by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe needs to be examined historically in the future.”

On the issue of Moritomo Gakuen and Kakei Gakuen, as well as the issue of cherry blossoms, he said, “Looking back at the administration, I think it was Prime Minister Abe’s biggest weakness. Even if we look at the diet’s discussions, we are concerned that Japan is losing its climate of accepting debate, leaving each other talking and criticizing each other. I have to say that there is a part of responsibility in this regard.”

On that basis, he said, “In the absence of new issues such as the conflict between the United States and China, there should be people who understand the role that Japan should play in the world and consider the essence of the problem within the framework of the international community as a whole. As for the Diet’s discussions, I would like them to change their views into positive discussions that respect the other party’s views and move in an essentially positive direction.”
