South Korea's unification minister and senior Japanese government officials reaffirmed their close cooperation in response to North Korea's escalating missile threats at a rare meeting on Thursday, a sign of a further thaw in relations that comes only a week after their leaders agreed to work past their troubled history and mend ties so they can better respond together to growing regional threats. Kwon Youngse is in Tokyo for talks with Japanese ministers and top governing party officials, becoming the first unification minister to do so in 18 years.
India has asked state-owned lenders to submit details of their bond portfolios ahead of a quarterly meeting between the government and banks this Saturday, amid the turmoil in global banks, seven bankers with direct knowledge of the matters told Reuters on Thursday. "The finance ministry has asked banks to submit data about their held-to-maturity (HTM) portfolios and mark-to-market (MTM) losses in trading books to identify any potential stress," one senior banker said on condition of anonymity. The data collection process has been going on for the last few days and is more of a precautionary exercise because the government "does not want to be caught off-guard" if the crisis spirals further, the banker added.

France braced for more transport woes and a new day of nationwide protests on Thursday after a defiant President Emmanuel Macron pledged to implement a contentious pensions overhaul by year-end.The 45-year-old leader on Wednesday said he was prepared to accept unpopularity because the bill raising the retirement age by two years was "necessary" and "in the general interest of the country".Acting on Macron's instructions, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne invoked an article in the constitution a week ago to adopt the reform without a parliamentary vote.The government on Monday narrowly survived a no-confidence motion, but the outrage has spawned the biggest domestic crisis of Macron's second term.The centrist president was first elected in 2017 with pledges to radically reform France.Macron's comments during a lunchtime interview on Wednesday, when most people would have been at work, have incensed union workers.Philippe Martinez, head of the hard-line CGT union, said that the remarks showed "disdain for the thousands of people who have been protesting".Protests were planned across the country on Thursday in the latest day of nationwide stoppages that began in mid-January against the pension changes, which include raising the minimum retirement age from 62 to 64.Half of all high-speed trains would be cancelled, national railway operator SNCF said, as union sources reported around a third of staff would be striking.At least half the trains into Paris from the suburbs would not be running.Paris municipal garbage collectors pledged to uphold a rolling strike, that has seen thousands of tonnes of rubbish pile up in the streets, until Monday.Blockades at oil refineries will also continue, potentially creating severe fuel shortages.- 'Excessive force'? -A survey on Sunday showed Macron's personal approval rating at just 28 percent, its lowest level since the height of the anti-government "Yellow Vest" protest movement in 2018-2019.The tensions have also raised questions over whether France can host the UK's King Charles III when he arrives Sunday for his first foreign state visit as monarch.While France's Constitutional Court still needs to give the final word on the reform, Macron told the TF1 and France 2 channels in the interview that the changes needed to "come into force by the end of the year".The government has said the reform is necessary to keep the system from slipping into deficit and to bring France in line with its European neighbours, where the legal retirement age is typically higher."The longer we wait, the more (the deficit) will deteriorate. This reform is necessary, it does not make me happy," he added.Critics say the changes are unfair for people who start working at a young age in physically challenging jobs, and for women who interrupt their careers to raise children.The government's imposition of the reform in the face of widespread opposition has sparked spontaneous protests in recent days, leading to hundreds of arrests and accusations of heavy-handed tactics by police.Lawyers, magistrates and some politicians accused police of making arbitrary arrests in an attempt to stifle the demonstrations, although this has been rejected by Paris police.Amnesty International expressed alarm "about the widespread use of excessive force and arbitrary arrests reported in several media outlets".- 'Unbelievable' -On Tuesday, Macron told allies at a meeting: "The crowd, whatever form it takes, has no legitimacy in the face of the people who express themselves through their elected representatives" in parliament.Asked in the interview to explain this remark, he said organised protests were "legitimate", but violence should be condemned and blockages should not impede normal activity.Referring to the insurrections by supporters of the ex-US and Brazilian presidents Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro after election defeats, he added: "We cannot accept rebels or factions."Prominent Green MP Sandrine Rousseau said the visit by King Charles should be cancelled. It was "unbelievable" that the president would dine with the monarch at the Versailles Palace outside Paris "while the people are protesting in the streets", she told BFM television.bur-ah/fb/mca

Marie Kondo may have admitted defeat, but a new generation of "cleanfluencers" is taking social media by storm, with millions watching them scour filthy homes and dole out cleaning hacks.Digging through a mountain of trash, Auri Kananen uncovered a rotten piece of pizza on the floor of a Helsinki flat, with insects devouring it."I love cleaning, I love dirt," declared the 30-year-old Finn, who has far more social media followers than Kondo, the Japanese tidying guru who has admitted embracing the messier side of life since having her third child.Kananen has quickly become one of the world's most successful "cleanfluencers", travelling the globe hunting for "the dirtiest homes possible"."I remember when I had 19 followers. Even then it felt really cool to have 19 strangers wanting to see me clean," said Kananen, or aurikatariina as she is known to her nine million followers on TikTok, with two million on YouTube.In her upbeat videos, she dusts, scrubs and sorts, wearing her signature hot pink rubber gloves as zippy pop music plays in the background. Her voiceovers often explain how the person she is helping ended up living in squalor."Usually people have some mental health problem or other tragedy that has happened in their lives," Kananen told AFP.The flat in Helsinki is the home of a depressed young man whose brother suffers from multiple sclerosis, she explained.She can relate to people living in miserable conditions because she went through a period of depression herself, she said."I know how overwhelming it is," she said.But her experience has shown her that no situation is hopeless.The comments sections of her videos are filled with people saying how her videos have helped them cope with their difficulties, praising her non-judgemental manner."I love how she is understanding the person in this situation and helping them instead of blaming them," one commenter wrote.- TikTok tidiers -With the global rise of TikTok, cleaning videos have become hugely popular on social media, inspiring a growing number to start posting content."I was watching videos and I thought, that's what I do at home, I can just film myself doing it," recalled 27-year-old Abbi, known as cleanwithabbi to her two million followers. The English single mum films herself cleaning, doing the dishes and hoovering in her red brick home in Huyton near Liverpool. Cleaning has always been an important part of her life as her youngest son Billy lives with sensory processing disorder."He really loves his routine and he does like things to be clean," she said. Now Abbi, who does not wish to reveal her full name, posts TikTok videos for a living. Brands sponsor her to use their products, and she earns between $720 and $1,200 a video. Abbi -- whose sons Jack and Billy are six and five -- hits the record button on her phone and swiftly makes their beds, arranging the soft toys nicely."It relaxes me, it's like therapy," she told AFP."For me it's like an escape from any worries I've got."- 'It's satisfying' -Ann Russell, a 59-year-old full-time cleaner from the south of England, has a different approach. Sitting on her sofa with her black dog Hollie, she answers a question from one of her TikTok followers, holding her phone up to her face. To remove a felt tip mark from a wooden table without removing the varnish she recommends isopropyl alcohol: "Dip a cotton bud in it and just rub it gently." She said people need to be taught how to clean properly."If nobody told you, how on earth are you supposed to know?" she told AFP.Russell makes between four and 12 videos every day, answering questions from her 2.3 million followers in a no-nonsense fashion. "I turn the phone on, I talk to the phone, and that's it. That's about as good as it gets. I am not very proficient," she said with a laugh.The fact that cleaning "is satisfying" may be behind the videos' success, Russell said.Most of her and Abbi's viewers are women and millennials, as well as people struggling to find the motivation to clean."Washing your socks, pairing them up and putting them in the drawer (gives) a sense of a good job well done," she said."It makes people feel in control. And because they feel in control in their personal life, they feel that the outside world is a safer place."ehu-je/po/fg
