Family members meet U.S. President

Many years of hard work partially paid off for members of our organization when President George W. Bush met with Sakie Yokota, mother of Megumi Yokota kidnapped by North Korea on April 28, 2006.

Mrs. Yokota and son, Takuya, were greeted at the Oval Office with Kim Han-Mee, the daughter of North Korean defectors.
President claimed that the meeting with Mrs. Yokota as
“one of the most moving meetings since I've been the President here in the Oval Office.”
American awareness regarding this grave issue was boosted by this meeting. It also provided some relief to the family members and supporting activists for the hard work over the decades.
