    ...Shinjiro Koizumi, who is the son of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, became the third-youngest lawmaker to join a post-World War II Japanese cabinet when current head Shinzo Abe reshuffled key appointments this month.

We are committed to realizing a decarbonized society, and we are ready to contribute as a more powerful country in the fight against climate change, Koizumi said, according to the Reuters report. Japan is the only G-7 country that is adding coal-fired power capacity. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had told...

    WASHINGTON: Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said Kim Jong Un will never give up nuclear weapons voluntarily an implicit warning to his former boss. Bolton was restating a consensus view of the Intelligence Community, one that runs counter to President Trumps faith that the North Korean dynast can be wheedled and cajoled. Speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies today, Bolton attracted a forest of TV cameras hoping for some fireworks. They probably thought they were getting something hot when Bolton made his comment about North Korea but, as Breaking D readers know, the Intelligence Communitys...

    A deadly surprise. Key point: Japan had a track record of surprise attacks. At midnight the Russian fleet slept. A few minutes after the clock struck 12 a.m. on February 9, 1904, Tsarist Russia's Pacific squadron peacefully bobbed at anchor at the Russian naval base nestled in the Manchurian town of Port Arthur. Ashore, the mood that night was festive as the garrison's army and naval officers availed themselves of refreshments at a birthday party for the admiral's wife. Soon their revelry was disturbed by flashes in the night and the dull thud of torpedoes slamming into metal hulls. Some...

It would also consider including the Strait of Hormuz in the SDFs sphere of activity if Iran agrees, the paper said, according to Reuters.
