The article reports on the agreement of Japan and Indonesia on a framework for a free-trade agreement that could secure future supplies of gas to Japan. A deal should be signed in 2007, with Tokyo hopeful that contracts for gas will be extended beyond 2010. Under the deal, Jakarta pledged to consult Tokyo beforehand if supplies of Indonesian oil and gas are to be reduced due to rising domestic demand.
