South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida have both said they will attend the Nato summit scheduled for June 29-30, where they will see each other in person for the first time; it has been less than two months since Yoon was inaugurated on May 10. While nothing has been decided on whether the two leaders will hold their first official bilateral summit on the sidelines of the Nato summit, there would be some interactions, even in lighter formats, South Korea’s National Security Adviser Kim Sung-han said, Wednesday. “We have not yet fixed on holding a bilateral summit with Japan or a … [Read more...] about Will leaders of South Korea, Japan stoke momentum for reconciliation at Nato summit?

KCNA via REUTERS/File Photo SEOUL — North Korea on Saturday condemned “aggression moves” by Washington and Seoul, vowing to take revenge as it marked the 72nd anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War at a time of rising tension on the Korean Peninsula. Amid concerns North Korea could be preparing to conduct its first nuclear test in five years, South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and U.S. President Joe Biden agreed in May to deploy more U.S. weapons if it was necessary to deter the North. The North’s state news agency KCNA said on Saturday a number of workers’ organizations had held meetings to “vow revenge on the U.S. imperialists,” blaming the United States for starting the 1950-1953 Korean War.

KABUL (Reuters) -Authorities in Afghanistan have ended the search for survivors of an earthquake that killed 1,000 people, a senior official said on Friday, adding that supplies of medicine and other critical aid were inadequate. About 2,000 people were injured and 10,000 houses were partially or completely destroyed in Wednesday's earthquake in a remote area near the border with Pakistan, Mohammad Nassim Haqqani, a spokesperson for the disaster ministry, told Reuters. "The search operation has finished, 1,000 are dead and the injured are around 2,000, both serious and superficial injuries," Haqqani said. He did not elaborate on why the search for survivors was being called off after some 48 hours. Survivors have been pulled from the rubble of other earthquakes after considerably more time. The 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck about 160 km (100 miles) southeast of Kabul, in a region of arid mountains dotted with small settlements that has often been at the centre of … [Read more...] about Afghanistan ends search for survivors of earthquake that killed 1,000

That would have been any models built and sold by the domestic-brand players, including General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, and certainly American Motors. Then things began to blur in the second half of the 20 th Century as U.S. automakers rebranded and cars built elsewhere in the world to help compete with the flood of fuel-efficient small European and Asian imports reaching our shores. Buick would come to sell cars built by Germany’s Opel, while Chrysler offered renamed Mitsubishis from Japan; Ford’s Capri came from Ford of Europe, and General Motors imported models from both Japan’s Suzuki and South Korea’s Daewoo. The waters would muddy even further as Asian and European automakers built assembly plants of their own in the U.S., the domestic brands moved some production to Mexico and Canada, and parts would be sourced from just about everywhere in … [Read more...] about Do You Know Which Are The ‘Most American’ Cars For 2022?
