I would say that if the discussions are only for the 2 smallest islands and not the whole 4, Abe should respectfully decline the offer and leave it for the time being, unless the agreement stipulates handing over the 2 now and discussions for the remaining 2 to occur in the future.
Putin won't last forever and there's hope Russia can become a bit less nationalistic and authoritarian in future

On the fence with this one, punching the student in the face is way over the top and dangerous, but school is partly for learning how not to become an idiot like that kid and to become a responsible member of society. I assume he takes that attitude of his outside of school as well.
Either way, hopefully this is a big learning experience for both the student and teacher, but the teacher would likely have to face some punishment here

Haha nope! Sneaky Carlos would flee the first chance he gets. Keep him locked up and in ropes Japan! Don't let these super rich elite get to you too

Good to see the authorities taking proper precautions to prevent illegals and asylum seekers fleeing into the country.

Good on the French government to finally admit Ghosn committed some truly shocking crimes. Although the French government's dallying over this highlights their vast incompetence, as shown by the yellow vest protests in Paris. Very uncivilized

Surrounded by Russia, China, and North Korea? Japan more realistically needs multiple aircraft carrier strike groups and also a few thousand nukes in a nuclear triad for guaranteed second strike capability. That would constitute an almost guaranteed deterrent to conflict as you can bet China or North Korea won't try anything if any escalation would result in the permanent annihilation of their countries

Finally some common sense coming out of SK. The SK government owes a lot more than $88k to each of its citizens it stole from. What an absolute disgrace

Amazing news and finally! About time Japan left that club of virtue signalers that served no purpose. The anti-everything crowd should be pleased, Japan will only be hunting locally. Well played!

Renault told alliance partner Nissan to stop contacting the French company's directors ahead of a Thursday board meeting as the Japanese automaker tried to share evidence of wrongdoing by its ousted chairman Carlos Ghosn, two sources said.
Ever since Ghosn's Nov 19 arrest in Japan, Renault and the French government, the automaker's biggest shareholder, have demanded to see the findings of a Nissan internal investigation that include allegations of financial misconduct by the 64-year-old executive.
So Nissan tries to share their findings of Ghosn's disgraceful crimes with Renault, after Renault demanded to see the findings, now Renault are saying they don't want to see it?
Jeez, no wonder France is going down the drain. Time to cull the Renault parasite from the Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, they are by far the weakest link

Good to hear these dangerous arsonists have been arrested and will be punished to the full extent of the law.
Can you imagine what would happen if a foreigner tried to start a fire outside the great hall in Tiananmen Square? Hint: they would be tortured to death over a few decades

If Japan could pull its head out of its own "bleep" and make English an official second language, then all of this barrier bs wouldn't be an issue. So many other countries have realized this long ago and have taken the necessary steps to be part of the global community.
Pray tell, which countries have made English an "official second language?" France? Nope, official only French. Germany? Nope, official only German. Surely you will be able to name a few since you said there are so many other countries who have done this.
Please name 5 countries with a similar situation to Japan who have adopted English as an official language despite having an established native language.

The market will work its magic and force these nursing homes out of business in short time. No one except a fool would send their loved ones to a place where no one speaks the language. What a joke

The cons are too many to be listed, and they are obvious. The pros are that many Japanese companies will be able to use cheap, albeit far lower quality, labour however this is far, far overshadowed over the massive problems they will bring.
A terrible mistake but one that will be quickly rectified

Our Ghosn is finally learning, it's a good first step that he has finally confessed to part of his incredible crimes. More will surely follow. His next learning task after that is learning how to behave in prison.

Good to hear! Keep him locked up until all evidence is compiled. If released, there is a 100% chance he will destroy evidence and flee the country. No CEO is above the law, as much as some would like. He is done
-4 ( +0 / -4 )
Sounds like he's got it good; good food, classical music, tea and coffee. If he were in America or some other country with blighted prison cultures, he probably wouldn't survive. Lucky him, and I guess his 10 years will go by in a breeze despite his disgraceful crimes

Boo hoo have a cry, it's for this criminal's benefit that he remains detained so he can get used to the long, long incarceration that the criminal will be getting and deserves.
He will be doing the time for his crimes, no one is above the law no matter how rich and powerful, unlike certain powerful persons in other countries

None whatsoever. You just need to look at Carlos the Criminal to see what bosses do to their employees. Thanks god he his going to jail for a long, long time

Haha bye bye Ghosn! Hopefully he enjoys his long time in jail and reflects on his crimes. No CEO is above the law

Yeah right, they're treated well in Japan. If they don't like it why don't they seek asylum elsewhere? Regarding the public property vandalism, prosecute the criminals to the full extent of the law. If some people are allowed to vandalize, all people are allowed to vandalize
