President Trump urged Japan to purchase fighters

Fuji TV reported at noon that it has learned the details of the bilateral summit between President Trump and Prime Minister Abe held in Hamburg, Germany, saying that the President pointed out the trade imbalance between the U.S. and Japan and strongly called for Japan to purchase defense equipment, including fighters. In response, the premier reportedly explained that Japan is planning to purchase U.S. fighters and Aegis-equipped ships and asked for his understanding. On bilateral auto trade, the network said while President Trump said there are many non-tariff barriers, Abe responded by saying that the matter will be discussed at the economic dialogue between Vice President Pence and Vice Prime Minister Aso. The network speculated that U.S. pressure on Japan will increase over such items as U.S. beef imports.
