Now, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is set to meet Trump again in the United States on April 17-18 to discuss ways on keeping the pressure on North Korea, the menace in East Asia which has kept all the regional powers anxious with its nuclear ambitions.
The White House informed about the impending meeting on Monday, April 2. The two will "reaffirm the United States-Japan alliance as a cornerstone of peace, stability, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region", according to a White House statement.
Officials are arranging a Japan-US summit in Florida around April 18th ahead of the expected first meeting between the US and North Korean leaders. Trump had accepted the proposal to meet Kim from a South Korean diplomat in March, leaving quite a few stunned.
Abe is also expected to discuss new USA tariffs. He said the trade deficit between the countries must be corrected, and Japan has not been exempted from Trump's list of countries whose steel and aluminum imports will be subject to tariffs.
