Bolton, Japan Officials Hold Iran Talks07/22 06:27

   TOKYO (AP) -- U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton has held talks with 
Japanese officials, presumably to discuss a U.S.-led military coalition to 
safeguard shipping in the Strait of Hormuz amid escalating tensions in the 

   Japan, whose use of force is limited to self-defense of itself and its 
allies under its pacifist constitution, is cautious about a military coalition.

   Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he wants to learn more about Washington's 
intentions before deciding if or how Japan can cooperate.

   Bolton, after meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Monday, 
said they "covered a lot of ground," but did not elaborate.

   Japanese media said Bolton might also discuss an escalating spat between 
Japan and South Korea over trade and wartime labor issues.
