U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder pressed Japan on Friday to ratify the Kyoto treaty, arguing that the Asian nation has a "special responsibility" as the country where the global warming accord was born. The 1997 agreement faces an important test at talks in Bonn next week. The position of Japan, the world's second-largest economy, has become pivotal to its survival.

Gearing up for a Sept. 8 protest against Japan, Asian American human rights groups in Los Angeles on Friday urged Japan to admit its World War II atrocities, issue a formal apology and make reparations to the victims. Without coming to terms with its wartime past, Japan will not enjoy credibility in the community of nations, said Robert Tsang of the Alliance for Preserving the Truth of the Sino-Japanese War, whose family came from Manchuria.

UC San Diego Professor Chalmers Johnson said Wednesday that rewriting the U. S.-Japan Security Treaty was "the only way to prevent genuine Japanese rearmament." In a speech at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan, Johnson called the treaty and its provisions establishing an "American protectorate over Japan" an anachronism rooted in conditions of the 1950s that no longer exist.

Soviet Foreign Minister Alexander A. Bessmertnykh described as shortsighted his country's past refusal to negotiate with Japan over its claims to four small islands occupied by the Soviet Union off Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost main island.

The United States moved Wednesday to impose hefty penalties on Japanese cargo vessels sailing into American ports in retaliation for what U.S. officials said are discriminatory practices against American carriers by Japan's maritime industry. The U.S. Federal Maritime Commission voted to begin levying fees amounting to $100,000 per voyage on ships owned or operated by three major Japanese lines--Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and Mitsui OSK Lines--that enter U.S. ports from abroad.

In an action that threatens billions of dollars in transpacific trade, the Federal Maritime Commission voted Thursday to bar Japanese container ships from entering U.S. ports and to seize ships already in port, beginning as early as today. The commission took the surprising and unprecedented step after three Japanese shipping companies refused to pay a $4-million fine levied by the commission last month in a bitter bilateral dispute.
