Ministerial talks among the 12 countries negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership ended Friday without a broad agreement after participating countries remained split over intellectual property and tariffs on dairy products, The Yomiuri Shimbun writes. Authorities hunting for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 say that they were “increasingly confident” that wreckage found on an Indian Ocean island was from the ill-fated jet, raising hopes of solving one of aviation’s great mysteries, a report in The Straits Times states. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says it’s time to strengthen unity, not dwell on the 1MDB scandal, according to The Star. The security officer of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto tells an anti-terrorism court that the director general of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) in 2007 had advised her hours before her assassination not to attend the public meeting at Liaquat Bagh, Dawn reports. Mourners bid farewell to Chinese security guard killed in Somalia, a report in China Daily states.
