100 days before summit, Prime Minister in critical condition

Date Posted: 2000-04-08

The Okinawa prefectural Summit Promotion Committee and the people of Nago city were shocked by news of the Prime minister’s condition on April 3rd. The prime minister has been visited Okinawa since he was a student. Many of his old friends in Okinawa were very worried about him and wish him a speedy recovery. An English teacher at Naha high school, Masako Takara said “About a month ago, students sent a letter to the prime minister in English. He personally called us when he received the letters. When we talked with him on the phone, he sounded fine. But, when we saw him on TV two or three days ago, he looked very tired. My students are worried about him, too. I cannot do anything for him, but I hope he will recover soon.” At the Summit Promotion Committee, members couldn’t keep their eyes off the TV news all day. A chairman of Okinawa Prefectural Construction Association, Kouichirou Kuniba says, “It was such shocking news. He worked hardest for Okinawa and was the most friendly person I’ve ever met.”
