Do you know about the radio broadcasting to North Korea?
The Government of Japan is to hold a “Symposium on the Radio Broadcasting to North Korea—the human rights issues and abduction issue involving North Korea, and the role of radio broadcasting in resolving these issues.”

Do you know about the radio broadcasting to North Korea?

The Secretariat
of the Headquarters for the Abduction Issue of the Japanese government, and some organizations of Japan, the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK), have been broadcasting radio programs to North Korea. In the programs, those organizations broadcast messages to abductees, news on North Korea, interviews, and songs from Japan and the ROK, on a daily basis.


In the Symposium on the Radio Broadcasting to North Korea, major radio broadcasting organizations will gather and introduce the activities they are carrying out. They will also discuss the role and future of radio broadcasting to North Korea in the process of pursuing the resolution of human rights issues in that country. (This symposium will be aired live to North Korea(15740KHz).)


The symposium will offer valuable opportunities to gain a better understanding of the radio broadcasting to North Korea, which the general public is unfamiliar with in their everyday lives, and to listen to the opinions of those who have been working on problems of North Korea on the front line. We look forward to your participation.
