  • India and Japan commit to Indo-Pacific strategy

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Monday he plans to visit the USA this month to discuss North Korea with President Donald Trump ahead of expected summits between the North and the us and South Korea. The venue of the meeting will be Trump's luxurious resort in Florida - Mar-a-Lago. While the date for that meeting has not been finalized, the White House had previously said it would occur before the end of May. The Trump administration popularised the term Indo-Pacific instead of Asia-Pacific to corner China in its own backyard.

During a meeting of government officials and ruling camp lawmakers on Monday, Abe said he will visit Florida from April 17th to the 20th and during his stay will hold a two-day summit with Trump.

President Trump has expressed his belief that Kim will negotiate for peace in the region, saying on Twitter that there was a "good chance that Kim Jong Un will do what is right for his people and for humanity", when the two meet. 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.




Abe is also expected to discuss new US tariffs.

A lot of engagements are underway ever since the news of the probable Trump-Kim meeting broke. "I will request in person that President Trump raise the abduction issue, which is the most important question, during the upcoming U.S".

"The two leaders will discuss the worldwide campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea in advance of President Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
