US-Japan trade talks stall

Tokyo and Washington failed to reached a basic agreement over a Pacific-wide trade deal despite intense talks.

    Talks between the US and Japan on a Pacific Rim trade pact have stalled, spoiling any chance of a showcase deal during President Barack Obama's visit to Tokyo. 

    Besides pushing the trade deal, Obama also backed Japan in a territorial dispute with China.
