U.S. Not to Seek Quantity Limit on Autos from Japan: Motegi

U.S. Not to Seek Quantity Limit on Autos from Japan: Motegi

   Tokyo, May 17 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Economic Revitalization Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said Friday he has confirmed with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer that the United States will not ask for quantity limits on Japanese vehicle imports in bilateral trade negotiations.
   Motegi's comment, made at a press conference, came ahead of a summit between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump later this month. The Japanese side is on alert over the issue.
   Some U.S. media organizations reported on Wednesday that Trump is considering, for national security reasons, an executive order seeking measures to restrict automobile and auto parts imports from Japan and the European Union.
   The implementation of such restrictions would likely deal a blow to Japanese automobile industries.
   Right after the media reports, the Japanese government conveyed a message to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative through diplomatic channels that Japan is against measures that distort free and fair trade.
