Heavy rains continued to fall on the southwestern island of Kyushu, with the possibility of floods Monday morning, amid fears that about 40 people had died.

The floods and mudslides that started at the weekend have killed 21 people so far.

Yoshidi Soga, Secretary-General of the Japanese Cabinet, said that there are 18 other people who show no signs of life, and they are considered dead while awaiting official confirmation, and 13 others have been lost.

"I extend my deepest condolences to those who died as a result of heavy rains," Soga said, adding that about 40,000 Self-Defense Force personnel are participating in the rescue operations.

He pointed out that the shelter centers are also working to prevent the spread of the Corona virus through the distribution of antiseptics, and he urged people to maintain their spacing.

According to Kyodo News, as of Saturday, about 200,000 people had been ordered to vacate their homes.

These floods are the worst natural disaster in Japan since Hurricane "Hagibis" that swept it last October and led to the death of about 90 people.

A North Korean journalist attacked a South Korean-American working group on Monday after Pyongyang recently refrained from criticizing South Korea.

"The Democratic People's Republic of Korea today", in an article titled "How long will South Korea be exposed to shame and obedience?" The South Korean political scene, press, and civil organizations criticize with a unified voice the Korean-American working group.

The website quoted former South Korean unity ministers as saying that the working group is the main obstacle to inter-Korean relations, and the South Korean government should not leave the bilateral relations between Seoul and Pyongyang to US President Donald Trump, and lead bilateral relations.

The site cited news reports from the South Korean media that say that in the framework of the working group between them and Washington, Seoul wasted a lot of time to enforce the inter-Korean agreements, which would lead to the deterioration of peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and inter-Korean relations.

North Korean propaganda sites deleted their critical news reports for South Korea on June 24, following a surprising decision by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to suspend military action plans against the south.

North Korean media, such as the Labor Party's Rodong Shinmun newspaper, have stopped criticizing South Korea.

Seoul and Washington formed the working group in November 2018 to coordinate policies in North Korea's nuclear disarmament, humanitarian aid, sanctions enforcement and inter-Korean relations.

Alexei Kondrativ, a member of the Federation Council's International Affairs Committee, responded to the statement of the Commander of the Ukrainian Navy Alexei Negababa, who announced his country's plans to "restore Crimea" and prepare for "war with Russia".

The Russian senator said: "This statement in itself is a provocation. Of course we cannot talk about any military operations with Russia."

The Ukrainian admiral believed that the reason for the possible military conflict was Russia's desire to return the waters of the Dnieper River to the Crimea, which were cut by Ukraine. He claimed that the Russian army would attack the Ukrainian province of Kherson to achieve this.

Alexei Negababa asserted that his subordinates were preparing for the attack, and that Ukraine possesses "Neptune" missile systems, which can bomb Sevastopol.
