Nikkei wrote on Saturday that Foreign Minister Motegi, Agriculture Minister Eto, Economy Minister Sugawara and other relevant ministers met at the Kantei on Friday and agreed that after the Japan-U.S. summit on Sept. 25 Japan will seek the issuance of a joint statement saying the U.S. will not impose additional tariffs and export quotas on Japanese cars and that no tariff-free import quota for U.S. rice will be set. Final coordination on the joint statement is reportedly underway. Motegi will meet with USTR Lighthizer ahead of the summit to finalize the terms of the trade deal to be signed by the two leaders.
