The support rating for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's Cabinet has risen to 66.7 percent, up from 62.0 percent in the previous poll conducted in December after the Liberal Democratic Party returned to power, reflecting public expectations for the premier's initiative to achieve economic recovery, a Kyodo News poll showed Sunday.

In the nationwide telephone survey conducted Saturday and Sunday, 63.3 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with the government's efforts in the Algerian hostage crisis, while 31.1 percent said they were not satisfied.

Meanwhile, 71.3 percent said they agree with revising the Self-Defense Forces Law to allow for the rescue of Japanese in conflicts overseas, while 24.9 percent opposed such an amendment.
