US-Japan Talks Pause Without Agreement 04/24 06:52

   Talks between the United States and Japan on a Pacific Rim trade pact have 
halted for now without any resolution in sight, spoiling plans for a showcase 
deal during President Barack Obama's visit to Tokyo.

   TOKYO (AP) -- Talks between the United States and Japan on a Pacific Rim 
trade pact have halted for now without any resolution in sight, spoiling plans 
for a showcase deal during President Barack Obama's visit to Tokyo.

   Economy minister Akira Amari, Japan's top negotiator, said too many issues 
remained unresolved and further working-level talks will be needed to reach a 
market-opening pact as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

   Amari told reporters Thursday that no end was in sight. He described the 
negotiations as in a "tough situation."

   The two sides had hoped to proclaim a broad agreement or at least 
significant progress during Obama's visit, which ends Friday.

   A Japan-U.S. deal is seen as crucial for talks among the other 10 countries 
participating in the U.S.-led initiative to move ahead.
