Caroline Kennedy

At her confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the nominee for the United States’ next Ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, spoke of the issue of child abduction in that country.  The following is an extract from an article which touches upon the subject:

Kennedy, responding to senators, praised Japan for cutting down on oil imports from Iran and pledged to press the ally over its refusal to let US parents see half-Japanese children who have been abducted.

“As a parent, I can certainly understand the emotional aspects of this issue,” Kennedy said.
