PM Abe's wife mum on ties with ultra-nationalist school
-- Akie Abe, wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, participates in a talk event in Tokyo celebrating International Women's Day on March 8, 2017. Akie spoke of the difference in the role of the Japanese prime minister's wife and that of the first lady in the United States, but left the event without answering reporters' questions on her ties with an ultra-nationalist school operator under scrutiny over a murky land deal with the central government. She was honorary principal of an elementary school scheduled to open in April at the site.
