  1. Japan Fin Min Aso: No Plan to Step Down as Finance Min August 1, 2013, 9:54 p.m. ET The Wall Street Journal TOKYO--Japan's finance minister said Friday that he has no intention of stepping down in response to domestic and international criticism over remarks he made referring to Nazi Germany. "I have no intention to resign" as finance minister or as a member of parliament, Taro Aso said at a press conference following the morning's Cabinet meeting. While reiterating that the misunderstanding caused by his remarks was regrettable and repeating his retraction of the remarks, he said "I have no intention to apologize." During the speech on Monday, Mr. Aso--who also serves as deputy prime minister and was once prime minister--said Japan should learn how Germany's constitution under the Weimar Republic was transformed by the Nazis before anybody realized what was happening. http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20130801-721754.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
