Jiji Press PARIS (Jiji Press) — French authorities will fully cooperate with Japan to resolve the case of a Japanese woman who has been missing in France, Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Friday.
Ayrault said he promises that French police will do their best to resolve the case and will provide information appropriately to Japan.
He made the comments in a press conference held after his talks with Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida in Paris.
The woman, Narumi Kurosaki, 21, went missing after having dined at a restaurant near Besancon in eastern France on Dec. 4.
At the restaurant, Kurosaki was apparently with her former boyfriend, Nicolas Zepeda Contreras, who is from Chile.
French authorities have put the Chilean man, who has returned to his country, on an international wanted list for the alleged murder of Kurosaki.
