Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will leave Japan on Monday to attend a U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York where he is expected to vow to support the social advancement of women and protect their rights, government sources said Sunday.

Abe is then expected to take the opportunity Thursday to demonstrate the government’s policy of improving women’s position in society in line with a U.N. Security Council resolution adopted in 2000 on protecting women’s rights.
