Japanese partner of Chrysler cuts back aid

Mitsubishi Motors will continue aid to Chrysler Corporation this month with short-term trade credits, which help the Japanese automaker import about 20,000 vehicles a month to the US. Chrysler, which has a 15 percent stake in Mitsubishi Motors, has asked the firm to increase US imports, but Mitsubishi will hold to present levels until Chrysler is financially sound.

Meanwhile, a group of seven Japanese banks, headed by Mitsubishi Bank, will not re-extend Chrysler credit of $160 million, which was stopped in January after the corporation refused to pay the overdue amount.
