US President Barack Obama on Friday won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for what the Nobel Foundation called “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”.

バラク・オバマ米国大統領は金曜日、2009年のノーベル平和賞を受賞した。ノーベル財団は「国際外交と民族間の協力を強化するための、彼の非凡な努力」を評価した。

Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Japanese banks’ bad loans won’t be driven higher by a proposed moratorium on debt payments by struggling small companies, said Financial Services Minister Shizuka Kamei.

Lenders won’t have to classify loans encompassed by the plan as non-performing, Kamei, 72, said in an interview yesterday at his office in Tokyo. That means they won’t be forced to boost provisions when borrowers postpone repayments of interest or principal, he said. At the same time, Kamei vowed to push banks to extend more credit to small businesses after bankruptcies hit a six-year high in Japan.

“We’re going to get financial institutions to provide these firms with more loans,” said Kamei. “Banks won’t have to treat debt on which they provide a moratorium as bad.”
