Sept. Trade Deal with U.S. Not Warranted: Abe

Sept. Trade Deal with U.S. Not Warranted: Abe

   Nagasaki, Aug. 9 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe suggested Friday that it remains uncertain whether the Japanese and U.S. governments will reach a trade agreement before he and U.S. President Donald Trump hold a summit in September.
   "When the final agreement will be reached depends on upcoming negotiations," Abe told a press conference in the southwestern city of Nagasaki. "I can't prejudge this."
   The two governments are working to hold a ministerial trade session within this month, in the run-up to the Abe-Trump summit expected to take place on the sidelines of a U.N. General Assembly session in September.
   "We haven't changed our stance of seeking an early win-win outcome for both Japan and the United States," Abe said.
   On a U.S.-proposed naval coalition in the Middle East, the prime minister said Japan is carefully considering what measures will be effective for ensuring safe navigation for Japanese-related ships.
