Two governments’ readouts on Abe-Trump meeting differ

Tokyo Shimbun wrote that there were discrepancies between the two government’s readouts on the U.S.-Japan summit. While the Japanese document mentioned that Prime Minister Abe conveyed to President Trump Okinawa’s concern about accidents and incidents caused by the U.S. military, no reference to this topic was made in the U.S. announcement. With regard to economic issues, the U.S. side explained that the President underscored the importance of correcting the trade imbalance, but the Japanese side only said that it is “confident that a correction will be made.”
