Hello and Welcome to News and Reports on China Radio International.

In This Edition

Japanese lawmakers elect Naoto Kan as the country's new prime minister, following the resignation of Yukio Hatoyama.

The death toll1 from the huge residential2 fire in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka stands at 117.

China says the upcoming Tashkent summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization is expected to approve a regulation allowing more countries to join.

And Britain's new Chancellor3 of the Exchequer4 George Osborne chooses China for his first international visit ahead of the G20 finance ministers' meeting in South Korea city Busan.


Hot Issue Reports

Naoto Kan becomes Japan's new prime minister

Japanese lawmakers have elected Naoto Kan as the country's new prime minister, two days after the resignation of Yukio Hatoyama.

The 63-year old Kan, the outgoing finance minister, is promising5 a "new start" after the ruling Democratic Party chose him as their new leader.

"Following the Hatoyama cabinet, we want to keep on their dreams to build together a true government. I need your help, please support me. Thank you very much."

Kan now becomes Japan's fifth prime minister in three years, taking the helm as the country struggles to rein6 in a huge public debt, engineer growth in an ageing society, and manage ties with its security ally in Washington.

He defeated Shinji Tarutoko, who was hand-picked by the former Secretary General of the DPJ, Ichiro Ozawa, who was widely believed to be the power behind Hatoyama.

Kan is expected to form a cabinet in the next few days, and to be sworn in by Emperor Akihito next week.

Mr Hatoyama resigned as prime minister earlier this week in a dispute over a US military base in southern Japan.


Bangladesh Apartment Fire Kills At Least 117

The death toll from the huge residental fire in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka stands at 117.

The massive fire raced through several apartment buildings and devastated7 a rooftop wedding party.

Fire officials say the blaze started when an electric transformer exploded, igniting a three-story apartment building in the compact area of old Dhaka before spreading to several other buildings.

Iqbal Hossain watched helplessly as the deadly fire raged.

"What I saw here can only be described as scenes from hell - there was nothing we could do - we had to stand at a distance and watch people burning and dying. Down this street the fire was advancing like lava8 - in every direction it was like lava was flowing through the streets. And everywhere people were running and screaming in pain and fear."

The fires are now under control.

A local TV station is reporting that the fire had spread to at least 20 apartment complexes, leaving the nearby medical college hospital overflowing9 with burn patients.

The fire is the 2nd mass tragedy in Dhaka over the last 48-hours, after a 5 storey building collapsed10 onto a tin-roofed shantytown, killing11 around 30 people.


Obama to visit India in November

US President Barack Obama has announced that he now plans to visit India in November.

Obama has told visiting Indian officials in Washington that relations with Delhi are among his highest priorities.
Meanwhile, after holding a strategic dialogue with Indian Foreign Minister S.M.Krishna, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the U.S.'s relationship with India is at a pivotal moment.

"We are collaborating12 on a counter-terrorism co-operation initiative to improve information sharing and capacity building, and we agreed to expand co-operation in cyber security. We are deepening our already extensive military-to-military partnership13."

For his part, Krishna says a segmented approach is unlikely to work in countering terrorism.

"We agreed that terrorism, terrorist groups operate as a syndicate leveraging14 each others' assets and strengths and are increasingly converging15 together on motivation and targets. Hence, a segmented approach towards terrorism, especially in our neighbourhood would not succeed. We are pleased with the way our counter terrorism co-operation has progressed and today we have agreed to intensify16 it further."

Obama's announcment of a trip to India comes at virtually the same time he, for the 2nd time, has cancelled a trip to Indonesia and Australia.

After first putting off the trip to battle to get his coveted17 healthcare legislation passed, Obama is now cancelling his trip to Indonesia and Australia to personally deal with the Gulf18 oil spill.


FM: Upcoming Tashkent Summit Expected to Approve Regulation on Adding new members

The upcoming Tashkent summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, or SCO, is expected to approve a regulation allowing more countries to join.

Cheng Guoping, the Assistant Chinese Foreign Minister, has revealed that the document is under discussion among all the SCO countries.

"The summit will review the SCO development over the past year and set agenda for further development.

Approving this new addition regulation is the first step in forming the basis for expanding SCO membership. The regulation would become a cornerstone of the organization's rules on membership expansion."

Cheng adds that the idea has been mulled over the past two years.

The SCO is currently made up of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Mongolia, Pakistan, Iran and India currently have observer status.

The delgates attending the summit next week, which will include President Hu Jintao, will also talk about ways to streamline19 the organizations internal procedures.


UK Chancellor of the Exchequer urge U.K. and China to fight protectionism

Britain's new Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne chose China for his first international visit ahead of the G20 finance ministers' meeting in South Korea city Busan.

Speaking at the UK embassy in Beijing, Osborne said that protectionism will be on the agenda of the G20 talks.

"I actually think China and Britain can be allies in making a broader argument in the world against protectionism, and for free trade, because both our economies benefit when that happens."

Osborne also went to Shanghai for a brief visit to the country's national pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo this morning, before heading to South Korea.

"In Britain, we as a new government are committed to reducing our budget deficit20 and I will have a budget myself on the 22nd of June, in two and a half weeks time, where we will show people that we can reduce the deficit and make sure that there is stability for the future so the whole world economy can grow" .

He also told UK business leaders in Shanghai that the new coalition21 government sought to establish strong relations with Beijing.


Thousands of Isaeli's Gather in Support of Military Raid on Gaza Bound Aid Ships

More than a thousand Israelis have demonstrated in front of the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv in support of the deadly naval22 raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla of aid ships.

The protesters waved Israeli flags and held signs saying Israel has the tight to defend itself.

"We are here to support the Israeli Defense23 Force and to tell Turkey this is hypocrisy24 and when talking about human rights they should remember the Turkish and Armenians and not hypocritically blame us for everything happening."

Israel maintains the commandos only opened fire as a last resort after they were attacked.

9 passengers, 8 Turks and one American of Turkish descent, were killed in the dramatic predawn raid earlier this week that has set off worldwide condemnation25 and a diplomatic crisis.


BP Places Cap on Blown-out Well, Oil May Reach Florida and Beyond

A cap has now been placed atop the blown-out Gulf of Mexico well, but the volcano of oil has obscured it from the view of the underwater camera, making it impossible to tell if BP's latest attempt to curtail26 the worst spill in America is having any success.

Robots a mile beneath the Gulf of Mexico positioned the inverted27 funnel-like lid over the main pipe on the leaking well.

BP says it doesn't know yet if the cap has been successfully attached.

Meanwhile, Synte Peacock with the National Centre for Atmospheric28 Research, says the oil may be entering the Gulf loop current and could reach Florida, and possibly as far north as North Carolina.

"It has to go somewhere. The ocean is always moving, it's full of eddies29 and currents. It doesn't stay still, it's not going to stay still."

Anywhere between 80 to 174 million liters of oil has spewed into the Gulf from the spill, which is now continuing into its second month.
