- U.S. missionary jailed in North Korea feels 'abandoned': paper
A U.S. missionary imprisoned in North Korea since 2012 has said he feels abandoned by his government and has appealed again for help in securing his release, a pro-North Korea newspaper reported on Thursday. Kenneth Bae, who is of Korean descent, was arrested in November 2012, convicted and sentenced to 15 years hard labor last year. "Bae said he had heard that the U.S. government is doing everything it can for his release but feels disappointment that there has been no sign of resolution when he is approaching two years in his stay in (the North) and that he feels abandoned by the U.S. government," the Choson Sinbo newspaper said. Bae said he was suffering from illness of the spleen as well as liver, prostate and spinal problems and he asked the United States to send a special envoy to try to secure his release, said the newspaper which is published in Japan but supports the North and reflects its views.

- Airbus adamant no room for more talks in cancelled Japan jet deal
Airbus on Thursday said its decision to cancel a $2.2 billion jet order from Skymark Airlines was final, rejecting the Japanese carrier's suggestion that talks were still ongoing. The European aircraft maker said this week it had informed Skymark that its purchase of six A380 superjumbos "has been terminated", just hours after the airline said it was still locked in tough negotiations. Skymark's Tokyo-listed shares plunged in the wake of Airbus announcement, wiping out a quarter of its market value -- amounting to about $64 million -- in just two sessions. A spokesman for the European firm's Tokyo unit told AFP Thursday: "We will not talk about the issue of the shipment anymore, as we have cancelled the order." He added that Airbus would now be working on a compensation package over the failed deal, which was signed three years ago.
