Sunday’s Yomiuri focused on press remarks made on Saturday by Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan leader Edano about the Tokyo summit between Prime Minister Abe and President Trump last week. “Based on the remarks made by President Trump, it is obvious that the premier has made concessions on U.S. agricultural imports beyond the scope of the TPP,” said the top official of the largest opposition party. “If the Japanese government says this is not the case, they will have to refute it in a manner that is clear to the U.S. government…. We will have to address this as a major campaign issue for the Upper House election based on the assumption that the premier has sealed a secret trade accord.”
