French help sought in missing Japanese woman case

Jiji Press TOKYO (Jiji Press) — Japan will continue to ask France for help in resolving the case of a Japanese woman who has been missing there, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said Thursday.

“Through diplomatic offices abroad, the Japanese government has been asking local authorities to provide information and shed full light” on the case, Kishida said.

Japan will continue to ask the French government and other concerned parties for help, Kishida told reporters at Haneda Airport before leaving on a trip to France, the Czech Republic and Ireland.

In the case, Narumi Kurosaki, a student of the University of Tsukuba in Ibaraki Prefecture, went missing in France in early December.

French prosecutors have put a Chilean man in his 20s on an international wanted list for the alleged premeditated murder of Kurosaki.Speech
