World War II apology stirs up new discussion in Japan

FILE - In this Thursday, July 12, 2012 file photo, North Korean Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun, center, leaves after the 19th ASEAN Regional Forum Retreat in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 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. North Korea is expected to send its longtime foreign minister, 80-year-old Pak Ui Chun, to the meeting in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, according to South Korea?s Foreign Ministry.
