Akashi postpones meeting with Obuchi over Tokyo Gov. race

Former U.N. Undersecretary General Yasushi Akashi postpones a scheduled meeting Feb. 15 with Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi following former Foreign Minister Koji Kakizawa's declaration of his candidacy for the Tokyo gubernatorial race. The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has asked Akashi to join the race on the LDP ticket. Akashi was expected to tell Obuchi at the meeting whether he will accept the nomination and run in the April 11 gubernatorial election. Reporters are seen surrounding Akashi Feb. 15 in front of his home in Tokyo's Minato Ward.
