(Update) Japan, Germany Reach Broad Accord on Info Protection Pact

   Tokyo, Feb. 4 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday reached a broad accord on concluding a bilateral information protection agreement, in a bid to step up their countries' security ties.
   The two leaders, meeting in Tokyo, also agreed to promote free trade, in response to protectionist moves by the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump, and affirmed their cooperation for a summit of the Group of 20 key advanced and developing economies to be held in Osaka, western Japan, in June.
   Following the entry into force of the Japan-European Union economic partnership agreement on Friday, Abe and Merkel confirmed both sides' commitment to strengthening economic cooperation.
   On Britain's planned exit from the EU in late March, the Japanese and German leaders shared the view that it is crucial to avoid a no-deal Brexit.
   They also confirmed their countries' cooperation for the complete denuclearization of North Korea and an early resolution to Pyongyang's abductions of Japanese citizens.
