Trump to host Japanese Prime Minister at Mar-a-Lago

North Korea'preparing for new nuclear test, Japan warns

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to visit the U.S. on April 17-20 for talks with President Donald Trump, he said on Monday. The venue of the meeting will be Trump's luxurious resort in Florida - Mar-a-Lago.

In a statement, the White House did not mention the abduction issue. Trump has said he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by the end of May.

"President Trump and Prime Minister Abe will explore ways to expand fair and reciprocal trade and investment ties between the United States and Japan, two of the world's wealthiest and most innovative economies".

In March, Trump and Kim agreed to meet, yet the timing and place of the high-profile gathering has not been announced yet. In Trump's recent imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, Japan was not given any exemption even if it is one of Washington's top allies.

A lot of engagements are underway ever since the news of the probable Trump-Kim meeting broke.

Abe said he will travel to the USA from April 17 to 20 and hold two days of talks with Mr. Trump at the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida to discuss North Korea and bilateral issues. And now, with Abe also set to meet Trump ahead of that key meeting, it is clear that no side is ready to leave any diplomatic stone unturned at the moment.

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.

Indian defense secretary Sanjay Mitra had visited the Pentagon last month, and India and the U.S. had also chose to participate in sea exercises off the Indian coast, including the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
