South Korea has reported 36,915 coronavirus infections and 540 deaths, the KDCA said.

The United States are the key player here and without them, nothing will happen,” said one person directly familiar with the policy reset talks. Like-minded democracies in the region such as Japan or South Korea, are important allies for any coordinated China policy, said a person familiar with the matter, who added, however: “Without the United States, Canada doesn’t have a China policy.”

Hyundai recalls 129,000 U.S. vehicles for engine issue

REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor Co is recalling 129,000 U.S. vehicles for an engine issue that can increase the risk of a fire, U.S. regulators said Friday. The recall covers some 2015-2016 Veloster, 2012 Santa Fe, 2011-2013 Sonata Hybrid, and 2016 Sonata Hybrid vehicles because connecting rod bearings inside the engine may wear prematurely, which over time can result in engine damage. Hyundai said all recalled vehicles will also receive an enhanced engine control software update containing a new Knock Sensor Detection System that monitors engine vibrations for unusual patterns potentially indicating an abnormal condition with the engine, such as a damaged connecting rod bearing. Last week, Hyundai and Kia Motors’ U.S. units agreed to a record $210 million civil penalty after U.S. auto safety regulators said they failed to recall 1.6 million vehicles for engine issues in a timely fashion. The settlement covered recalls in 2015 and 2017 for manufacturing issues that could lead to bearing wear and engine failure.

Chung Sung-Jun/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoSEOUL/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Washington’s point man on North Korea, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun, is scheduled to visit Seoul next week to meet with South Korean officials, four sources with knowledge of the trip told Reuters. Besides meeting with South Korean officials, Biegun was also due to give a speech, the sources said, though it was unclear whether a continuing spike in coronavirus infections in South Korea would interfere with those plans. Talks over reducing international sanctions on North Korea in return for concessions from Pyongyang broke down in the wake of a summit between Trump and Kim in Vietnam in February 2019, which ended with no deal. Relations between the allies were also complicated by South Korean frustrations with U.S. objections to some of its efforts to engage with North Korea.

SINGAPORE — JPMorgan says stocks in emerging markets may rise as much 20% in 2021 after being largely ignored by investors this year. "I think emerging markets are very under owned as we see in the markets rally," Joyce Chang, chair of global research at JPMorgan, told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Thursday. Besides China and India, many other emerging markets have been shunned by investors in 2020 as they largely flocked toward safety. Historically, investors have had about 9% allocated overall to emerging market stocks, she explained. "I think there's scope for catch-up in 2021 for emerging markets," she said.

China has restricted sales of South Korean games, dramas and concerts as well as tours to South Korea since 2017, in a move widely seen as retaliation for Seoul’s decision to host a U.S. missile defence system. China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, visited South Korea last week after a two-day visit to Japan. “The presidential office asked China to more actively cooperate in invigorating collaboration in the culture and content areas in a recent meeting between foreign ministers of Korea and China on Nov. 26,” the South Korean presidential office said. He said the number of Korean games approved this time was small compared with other foreign games from the United States and Japan.

Slideshow ( 3 images )The information technology company said in a blog post published on Thursday that it had uncovered “a global phishing campaign” focused on organizations associated with the COVID-19 vaccine “cold chain” - the process needed to keep vaccine doses at extremely cold temperatures as they travel from manufacturers to people’s arms. Understanding how to build a secure cold chain is fundamental to distributing vaccines developed by the likes of Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE because the shots need to be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius (-94 F) or below to avoid spoiling. The hackers went through “an exceptional amount of effort,” said IBM analyst Claire Zaboeva, who helped draft the report. “Whoever put together this campaign was intimately aware of whatever products were involved in the supply chain to deliver a vaccine for a global pandemic,” she said. Who is behind the vaccine supply chain espionage campaign isn’t clear.

Weekly net inflows of bitcoin - a proxy for new buyers - to platforms serving mostly North American users have jumped over 7,000 times this year to over 216,000 bitcoin worth $3.4 billion in mid-November, data compiled for Reuters shows. Others also point out that cryptocurrency trading is highly opaque compared to traditional assets and patchily regulated, making comprehensive data on the emerging sector rare. Nonetheless, Chainalysis found North American trading volumes at major exchanges - those with the most blockchain activity - had eclipsed East Asia’s this year.
