May 20, 2018

BEIJING — Chinese President Xi Jinping is increasingly turning to friend and trusted confidant Wang Qishan to help guide the country's foreign relations as he prepares for a potentially bruising trade fight with the U.S. and competition for leadership in Asia. The 69-year-old Wang was appointed vice president in March, but exercises outsized influence in the historically symbolic position despite standing down from the ruling Communist Party's leading body due to age restrictions. A look at Wang's new role, what he brings to the job, China's most pressing foreign policy challenges, and the ways Wang and Xi are addressing them:...

TOKYO — Japanese electronics company Toshiba Corp. said Thursday the sale of its computer memory chip business to a consortium led by Bain Capital Private Equity has cleared all anti-trust regulatory approval, including one it was awaiting from China.

3 Japanese seek damages, apology for forced sterilizations

May 20, 2018

TOKYO — Three Japanese who were forcibly sterilized under a government policy decades ago filed lawsuits Thursday demanding an apology and compensation, in a growing movement seeking official redress. The two men and a woman, all in their 70s, are among at least 16,500 people who were sterilized without consent under a 1948 Eugenics Protection Law that was in place until 1996. The law, designed to "prevent the birth of poor-quality descendants," allowed doctors to perform abortions or sterilize people with disabilities. The three plaintiffs are seeking about 80 million yen ($730,000) in total. They filed their cases Thursday at...

China vows to defend its own interests in US trade talks

May 20, 2018

HONG KONG — China said Thursday it doesn't want to see increased trade tensions with the U.S. as the two countries hold talks in Washington this week, but it's prepared for any outcome and will defend its own interests. The comments by a Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman came after President Donald Trump tweeted that there has been "no folding" in the discussions.
