Japan requests the world to pronounce its leader's name correctly: Abe Shinzo

Japan has a small request to make to the world, and that is to pronounce their names right. Japanese people are referred by their family name, followed by the given name. In English, it is the opposite way round, and Abe Shinzo has requested the media to write his name as Abe Shinzo, just like Chinese president Xi Jinping. They are also going to issue a request to the international media to follow suit.
