DEAUVILLE, France - The United States will help Japan as it rebuilds after a massive earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis, President Barack Obama said on Thursday, soothing a rift between the two allies over the atomic disaster.

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan told Obama in a meeting on the sidelines of a Group of Eight summit in France that Japan has delayed a decision on whether to join a US-led free trade pact due to quake impacts, a Japanese official said.

"The United States will stand by Japan for as long as it takes for Japan to recover," Obama told Kan in their first meeting since the March disaster that struck northeast Japan, leaving about 24,000 dead or missing.
