Japan’s Abe to meet Trump ahead of U.S.-North Korea summit
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is heading to Washington to strive to be certain President Donald Trump does not overlook Japan’s safety and different considerations on the unprecedented U.S.-North Korea summit subsequent week.
Abe can have lower than two hours to make his factors to Trump on the White Home on Thursday, ahead of the American president’s June 12 assembly in Singapore with North Korean chief Kim Jong-un.
Japan has fallen behind China and South Korea within the latest burst of diplomatic engagement with North Korea. Chinese language President Xi Jinping and South Korean President Moon Jae-in have each met Kim twice, as Abe waits his flip.
Abe does not need Trump to strike a compromise that would depart Japan uncovered to shorter-range missiles that don’t threaten the U.S. mainland.
