Abe expresses opposition to any possible reduction of U.S. forces from Korean Peninsula

Tuesday evening’s Nikkei wrote that in an interview with the Financial Times that was published on Monday, Prime Minister Abe was quoted as expressing Japan’s opposition to any withdrawal or reduction of U.S. forces from the Korean Peninsula in exchange for the denuclearization of the DPRK. “It is my understanding that there is no such idea in the minds of the U.S. side nor in the mind of President Trump,” he reportedly said. Abe described his recent trade talks with President Trump as productive, adding that he doesn’t feel there are excessive tariffs in many sectors when it comes to trade between Japan and the United States. In addition, Abe welcomed the UK’s reported desire to participate in the TPP.
