Abe provides explanation to parliament on “TAG” talks with U.S.

Nikkei highlighted yesterday’s Diet session, during which Prime Minister Abe was criticized by opposition officials for agreeing with President Trump to launch the so-called “TAG” negotiations, which they insisted should be regarded as FTA talks. In response, the premier said: “There is no internationally established definition of an FTA. As a matter of semantics, I acknowledge that some people hold the view that the TAG talks are a type of FTA talks…. I am determined to safeguard the nation’s agriculture, forestry, and fisheries industries without fail.”
