Abe to visit Florida from April 17 for two-day summit with President Trump

NHK reported this afternoon that Prime Minister Abe said he will visit Florida from April 17 to 20 for talks with President Trump over two days. Abe was quoted as saying at a liaison meeting of the government and ruling parties this morning: “If the situation allows, I will visit Florida from April 17 to 20 and hold talks with President Trump on items of mutual interest, including North Korea, for two days.” The premier also expressed hope to directly ask the President to raise the abduction issue during his summit meeting with the North Korean leader. In addition, Abe reportedly said: “Based on past lessons, holding dialogue for the sake of dialogue is meaningless. We must maintain maximum pressure in order to make North Korea commit to abolishing its nuclear and missile programs in a complete, verifiable, and irreversible manner and take concrete actions toward that end.”
