World War II apology stirs up new discussion in Japan

FILE - In this Friday, April 12, 2013 file photo, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, left, shakes hands with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se during a joint press conference at Foreign Ministry in Seoul, South Korea. The upcoming regional security summit in this tiny Southeast Asian sultanate is the sort of venue where North Korea has often managed to open up sideline discussions with Seoul and Washington. This time, while there will be plenty of talk about Pyongyang, there is little chance of substantive talk with it. Kerry, Yun and their counterparts from China and Japan will attend the forum and could hold private meetings that touch on Pyongyang. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man, File)
