Japan PM to visit United States in April for talks with Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump and Abe will meet at Trump's Florida resort Mar-a-Lago to discuss the campaign to maintain maximum pressure on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) ahead of the planned meeting between Trump and the DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un, said the White House in a statement.

Suga added that Japan has been conveying its concerns about the tariffs to United States officials.

In addition to North Korea diplomacy, this Trump-Abe meeting takes place as the United States and China threaten to hit each other's exports with tariffs; Japan is wary of being caught in the middle of a U, S,-Chinese trade war.

North Korea appears to be "working hard to get ready for the next nuclear test", Kono said in a lecture in Kochi city, referring to soil removal from the tunnel at the nuclear test site where past tests were conducted. The victims were kidnapped for a variety of purposes, including teaching Japanese to North Korea spies.

The US state department Monday said that Alice Wells, the US diplomat for South Asia, and Susan Thornton, the state department official in-charge of the East Asia and Pacific affairs, will lead the delegation traveling to India.

Abe said today he will hold two days of talks with Trump at the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida to discuss North Korea and bilateral issues.

The discussions come a time when Trump is seeking to change the US trading relationships across the globe, claiming that Japan among other countries has long taken advantage of the United States. While the date for that meeting has not been finalized, the White House had previously said it would occur before the end of May.
