Trump Set To Host The Japanese Prime Minister At Mar-A-Lago Again
The White House announced the two leaders will discuss trade negotiations and North Korea.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is slated to visit President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida later this month.
The White House said Monday that Abe and Trump will meet April 17-18 to discuss trade negotiations and North Korea.
News of this summit comes after Trump agreed last month to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. If the meeting does take place, Trump would be the first sitting U.S. president to meet with a leader from the Hermit Kingdom.
Local media report Abe wants Trump's help on the issue of the North Korean abduction of Japanese citizens.
Abe and Trump have already met twice before — once at Mar-a-Lago in February 2017 and again when Trump toured Asia last November.
