Security Council meeting on the issue on Wednesday.

Japan upper house poll campaign begins, Abe's ruling bloc leads | Reuters

TOKYO Campaigning for an election to Japan's upper house of parliament begins on Wednesday, as surveys give Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling bloc the lead, despite doubts about his growth policies and desire to revise the post-war pacifist constitution. Abe's coalition is in no danger of losing power in the election but he needs a solid win to keep his Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) lawmakers in line and perhaps stay on another three years after his tenure as LDP president expires in 2018. Abe is casting the July 10 election for half the seats in the 242-member chamber as a referendum on his decision to delay a planned hike in an unpopular sales tax and his "Abenomics" recipe of hyper-easy monetary policy, spending and reform. #Japan #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Election
