Abe Gets Little From Trump to Douse Political Firestorm in Japan

The US president did not exempt Japan from punitive steel and aluminium tariffs, as he has done for other US allies.

"The media has not covered the TPP correctly", Trump complained, standing next to Abe after their talks in Florida.

In 2002, North Korea admitted to the kidnapping of 13 Japanese civilians, dating back to the 1970s, but Tokyo believes the true number to be higher.

Speaking on Thursday, Mr Moon said North Korea had said it was ready for "complete denuclearisation", and called for "bold imagination and creative solutions" to ensure the Koreas summit and the Trump-Kim summit would succeed. The president criticized Japan both on Twitter and at a joint press briefing with Abe, who failed to win an exemption from USA tariffs on metals or convince Trump to rejoin the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. "They are greatly contributing to US industries and employment", Abe said.

Abe drew laughs before a dinner with the joint delegations in a baroque dining room when he recounted the strength of their relationship over food, which included a cheeseburger on the golf course and a working luncheon Wednesday.

Trump appeared to be successful Tuesday in reassuring Abe that he would take Japan's concerns to heart during his upcoming meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Mr Trump is expected to hold a summit with Mr Kim by June. Trump said he wasn't. "And now we are going to have our dinner".

At a joint news conference, he and Japanese PM Shinzo Abe said maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea over nuclear disarmament, BBC reported. And right from the beginning we hit it off.

He said Mr Pompeo had forged a "good relationship" with Mr Kim - whom the United States president was previous year calling "little rocket man" - and that the meeting had gone "very smoothly".

That was the session Trump suggested he was most looking forward to. "But we want to approach the discussions from the point of view that the TPP is best for both of the countries". "We will continue pushing our products.", said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The session on trade and economic issues quickly turned tense and tough, according to two USA officials, as the leaders found themselves at an impasse on the tariffs.

Last week, Trump made a surprise move to instruct officials to study the possibility of rejoining the TPP.

Abe won some initial credit in Japan by rushing to the U.S.as soon as Trump was elected in late 2016.

Trump said the invitation to his private club was a sign of how much he liked Abe. They like it; I like it.

"Now it will be a matter of days", added the US President.

Trump's most frequent caller is the president of France, Emmanuel Macron.
