Malaysia proposes tough new laws that could give the authorities the power to jail would-be terrorists for up to 30 years, The Straits Times says. Thai Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha promises to exercise his powers under Article 44 of the provisional charter "in a constructive manner" - an apparent bid to allay concerns over a new order he will issue to replace martial law, The Nation reports. Washington is willing to cooperate with the new China-led infrastructure investment bank, according to an envoy of United States President Barack Obama, China Daily writes. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expresses hopes for a proposed three-way summit also including China following his conversation with South Korean President Park Geun-hye in Singapore on Sunday, a report in The Yomiuri Shimbun states. In business, South Korea's top automaker, Hyundai Motor Co., and its smaller affiliate, Kia Motors Corp., see combined sales in the United States topping 15 million units over the past 29 years, a report in The Korea Herald notes.
