In the emergency program, the Investigation Commission on Missing Japanese Probably Related to North Korea called on abductees to be always prepared for an emergency situation and prioritize ensuring their safety.
The program was started on Sunday in the group’s "Shiokaze" shortwave radio broadcast service.
It reported that North Korea conducted a missile launch on the same day despite repeated calls for restraint from the United States and warned that the prospect of a possible U.S. airstrike has loomed. The missile launch is believed to have ended in failure.
