BERLILN P.J. Williams Saints Jersey , Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel hasruled out any forms of cooperation between her party and thefar-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) as the latter is likely toenter the Bundestag in the upcoming federal elections.
"It is quite clear that the AfD cannot be a partner for us inany form of cooperation. We must try to win back every singleperson," Merkel told the Welt am Sonntag.
"This requires patience with people's concerns and the attemptto address them repeatedly with concrete solutions to specificproblems," said Merkel, who is also the candidate of the rulingChristian Democratic Union (CDU) for the next chancellery.
As the German federal elections scheduled on Sept. 24 areapproaching, the AfD is likely to win over 5 percent of votes andthus reach the threshold for entering the Bundestag, or the FederalParliament, for the first time after the WWII as a far-rightparty.
According to the latest opinion polls, the anti-migration andanti-euro AfD won around 10 percent of support rates fromrespondents, becoming the third runner on the support ratelist.
The CDU and its Bavaria sister party Christian Socialist Union,led the opinion polls with around 39 percent, while the majoropposition party, the Social Democratic Party led by Martin Schulz,came as the runner-up with about 22 percent.
AfD gained popularity as Merkel decided in 2015 to openGermany's borders to over 1 million refugees, however, the Germanchancellor told Welt am Sonntag that not all people agree withtheir refugee policy, but she will not ease the desire to convincethe doubters that it was right and responsive to the great globalchallenge.
"We can neither push ourselves off nor cut off, but we mustfight the causes of refugee and migration, "said Merkel.
Merkel on Saturday encountered fierce protest in an electioncampaign rally in Quedlinburg in eastern Germany's state ofSaxony-Anhalt, where the anti-foreigner sentiment is obviouslystrong.
Although Merkel was interrupted for several times by whistlesand jeers by thousands of protestors, Merkel made it clear in herspeech that refugees were welcome in Germany and the year like 2015would not repeat. Enditem
TOKYO, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said on Thursday that it has been sued by 157 individuals in a court in the United States for 5 billion U.S. dollars in damages over the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.
The plaintiffs, including crew members on board the USS Ronald Reagan during the 2011 disaster, said the amount would be used to set up a compensation fund for the costs of medical tests and treatment for recovery efforts from radiation exposure they suffered.
The suit, filed on Aug. 18 with the Southern District Court in California, was the second one that hit TEPCO in the United States, following a similar suit filed in 2013 which has 239 plaintiffs registered as of Thursday.
TEPCO, operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, has been hit with a number of lawsuits for alleged negligence or improper design, construction and maintenance of the nuclear facilities.
A local court in Gunma prefecture, central Japan, ruled in March that the Japanese government and TEPCO were liable for negligence in the Fukushima disaster and shall pay a total of 38.55 million yen (352,500 U.S. dollars) to some 137 evacuees from Fukushima in Gunma prefecture for their sufferings.
For another case, the first criminal one after the disaster, three former TEPCO executives appeared in court in June and pleaded not guilty to professional negligence for the fatal meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in March 2011.
A magnitude-9 earthquake struck eastern Japan in March 2011, triggering a devastating tsunami and killing more than 15,000 people.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, operated by TEPCO, was severely damaged by the quake and tsunami and three of its reactors suffered meltdowns due to loss of cooling power, spewing radiation and forcing some 160,000 residents in neighboring areas to flee.
TEPCO, which was bailed out by the government, has been grappling with the lengthy task of decommissioning the plant and carrying out ongoing decontamination and radiation cleanup work which is likely to take decades.
