Trump, Abe Seek Consensus on North Korea amid Strains
Local Editor

US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will seek common ground on how to deal with North Korea's nuclear challenge on Tuesday amid fears in Tokyo that Trump might be prone to make too many concessions.

Donald Trump - Shinzo Abe

Talks, to be held in Florida for two days, will discuss North Korea, in addition to trade, relations with China and other issues.

Both leaders could use a successful summit to give themselves a political boost at home. Trump has been hounded by controversies linked to an investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 election, and Abe is struggling with declining popularity because of scandals over suspected cronyism.

Trump forged close ties with Abe over his 15 months in power and the two have bonded over rounds of golf both during Abe's last visit to Florida more than a year ago and Trump's visit to Tokyo last November.

Tokyo, meanwhile, fears Trump will try to link vital security matters with touchy trade topics.

Trump's agreement to hold a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a session expected in late May or early June at a place yet to be determined, has also raised some concerns among Japanese officials.

Japan wants Trump to avoid a deal in which Pyongyang gives up ballistic missiles that can hit the US mainland but keeps shorter-range missiles that threaten Japan.
Abe also wants Trump to bring up Japanese citizens kidnapped by Pyongyang long ago.
