SUBJECT: TOKYO MEDIA REACTION - SUDAN

1. LEAD STORIES: Front-page stories on Friday morning
included the repercussions of Toyota President Toyoda's
congressional testimony and moves among the U.S.,
Japan, and other industrialized nations to establish a
new international organ tasked with cracking down on
tax havens.

2. "Momentum for Peace in Darfur " On the recent
ceasefire agreement reached between the Sudanese
government and the rebel group Justice and Equality
Movement (JEM), the business-oriented Nikkei
editorialized (2/26): "A number of major problems must
be dealt with in order to reach a conclusion to the
Darfur conflict, including JEM participation in the
government, distribution of resources, and the
repatriation of refugees. It is also necessary to
involve other rebel parties that did not take part in
the latest peace negotiation. The international
community needs to bear in mind the history of truce
accords being violated and patiently support the peace
process so that it can bear fruit.... The international
community should help to implement the peace pact and
set up a support system for a post-peace accord era. In
this regard, the role of China, which has enormous
influence over the al-Bashir administration due to its
development of resources [in Sudan], will hold the
key."
