South Korea and Canada concluded a free-trade agreement Tuesday, wrapping up a negotiating process that began nine years ago and focused on barriers in the auto and agriculture sectors. The South's trade ministry said the FTA would be signed as early as June after legal reviews by both sides. Talks between the two countries began in 2005 but suffered a five-year hiatus as Canada took South Korean restrictions on beef imports to a World Trade Organisation panel in 2009. The trade ministry said South Korea's auto industry would be the greatest beneficiary of the deal, which is the first FTA Canada has signed with an Asian country.
By Johnny Cotton LYON, France (Reuters) - The international police agency Interpol does not believe the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane was the result of a terrorist attack, its head said on Tuesday. Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble also suggested that two men who boarded using stolen passports and had aroused suspicion may have been smuggled by traffickers. Two Iranian passport holders aged 18 and 29, who started their trip in Doha, had swapped their passports in Kuala Lumpur and used stolen Italian and Austrian passports to board the airliner, he told reporters at Interpol's headquarters in Lyon. Interpol is working with member countries to follow all leads including "terrorism, organised crime, illegal movement of people, whether in the form of human trafficking or smuggling," Noble said.

"They (Palestinians) say they will never recognise a Jewish state and that they will never give up on the right of return," Netanyahu said in remarks broadcast on Israeli public radio.
