I am confident in Trump, Shinzo Abe PM of Japan.
Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe stated he had a “very frank discussion” on Thursday with Donald Trump, US President-elect.
They met in New York in “unofficial” meeting, Abe said to reporters, as Trump is not yet president.
Abe stated, he surfaces with a feeling that Japan and U.S will be capable to uphold a “relationship of trust” after Trump as president.
This was primary in-person meeting of Trump with an overseas leader of state since he secured the presidency previous week.
“I am extremely honored to witness the President-elect in front of additional world leaders,” Abe said to reporters earlier than his departure.
“The US-Japan coalition is the axis of security and diplomacy of Japan. The coalition turns out to be alive merely when there is faith among us.”
While unclear, this account would be comforting to the Japanese people, director of Asian studies, Jeffery Kingston at Temple University of Japan, said.
“Abe has invested lots of serious capital in amplification association with U.S, and was concerned to witness his complete program going vague,” he stated.
“By meeting, Abe desires to demonstrate the world that Japan and U.S still stand next to each other.”
A top adviser to Abe, Katsuyuki Kawai, stated that he had been notified by members of transition team of Trump that his previous comments must not be taken accurately.
Abe turned down to state if the 2 men sorted out the defense matter or talked about their difference over the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) trade agreement, but said repeatedly that he is “convinced that Mr. Trump is a man in whom he can trust in any matter.”
“I passed on my different views on various issues, but as he has not been in the office this time, I would like to avoid from going into the details,” Abe stated.
