Mainichi and Nikkei wrote that the chief negotiators of the 11 TPP member states began their three-day talks in Tokyo on Thursday to narrow down the items in the original TPP agreement to be frozen following the U.S. withdrawal from the free trade pact. According to the papers, the negotiators narrowed down the original list of 70 items for possible suspension to around 50 on the first day of the negotiations. Yomiuri wrote that the focus of attention will be whether the 11 nations will be able to reconcile their differences in order to effectuate the new accord and that the negotiations may run into difficulty.
