Anyway, I would like to thank Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for the kind gesture toward the Korean refugees. I extend my heart to him. I am happy and humbled by his willingness to protect the human rights of the North Korean refugees and allow them to go to South Korea as they had wished.

I believe there are many more people in North Korea who wished they had left the place for another country. It is my hope, and I believe that of many others, that North Korea will do what it is needed to better the economic and social lives of the suffering masses in that country.
