NHK reported this morning that Economic Revitalization Minister Motegi and USTR Lighthizer spoke by phone on Tuesday evening, saying that the two officials confirmed arrangements for a second round of trade talks as early as Sept. 21 ahead of the planned U.S.-Japan summit to be held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. The network claimed that although the GOJ is apparently hoping to proceed with the talks while avoiding bilateral FTA negotiations, President Trump has been repeatedly calling on Japan to take concrete actions to reduce the U.S. trade deficit with Japan.
