Japan, South Korean Leaders Could Meet Next Week

5993003335152231866.jpg(source) the number of new annual cases has risen slightly after years of steady decline, and medical experts say the enormous fear surrounding leprosy is hindering efforts to finally eliminate it. (AP Photo /Manish Swarup)' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> Most Japanese leaders have met their South Korean counterparts within the first year in office, so the failure of Abe and web link Park to do so has been a worry for the United States. Both are important allies in the face of Chinas military rise and the North Korean nuclear threat. U.S. officials have urged the two neighboring countries to improve ties and promote healing of historical grievances. A South Korean presidential spokesman told reporters Friday that Seoul will likely make an announcement http://picviroter.blogs.experienceproject.com soon on the three-way talks that are to be held in the Netherlands. South Korean media interpreted the comments by Min Kyung-wook as a confirmation that the meeting will take place but Seouls presidential office and Foreign Ministry couldnt immediately confirm that. A meeting seemed all but impossible until Friday last week, when Abe said for the first time that his government is not considering a revision of the countrys 1993 apology for forcing Korean and other women to work in brothels for Japanese soldiers before and during World War II. South Korea reacted cautiously but positively to Abes statement. There are risks for Park in meeting Abe, said Robert Dujarric, the director of the Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies at Temple University Japan.

Australia Rejected Qantas Request For $2.7 B Loan

5968736600557779676.jpg Qantas said it would cut 5,000 jobs in a bid to slash costs by AU$2 billion over three years. Qantas' credit rating was downgraded from investment grade to junk in December when it warned of a looming interim loss of up to AU$300 million and job cuts. The government plans to repeal http://emerycprs.hazblog.com legislation that prevents foreign airlines from holding more than 35 percent of Qantas and any single foreign investor from holding more than a 25 percent stake. The http://treycuzu.busythumbs.com/entry_id/883636/action/viewentry/ legislation also mandates 51 percent Australian ownership. Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce on Wednesday welcomed the government's decision to allow more foreign investment, which he said would "level the playing field" with its major competitor Virgin Australia. Virgin Australia is 64 percent owned by three state-owned carriers: Air New Zealand, Etihad Airways and Singapore Airlines. Joyce argues that foreign governments were funding Virgin Australia's "loss-making strategy in the domestic market." Joyce said a government-backed debt facility would have been an interim measure to correct distortions in the aviation market created by restrictions on ownership of Qantas. "We are a very healthy airline, we're in a very strong position, but we have to manage our way through this loss of rating and we have a plan to do that," he said.
