China and Japan at "unmentioned swipe" at Trump in America: Russian Federation

China and Japan at

Embattled Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who heads Tuesday to Mar-a-Lago for a meeting with US President Donald Trump, is in dire need of a policy win as he faces challenges overseas and protests at home. "So Abe should tell Trump that Japan and the USA need to act as one and urge Trump to understand Japan's position on North Korean issues, as well as economic issues".

Trump said, "In many cases, our friends are worse than enemies in terms of trade deals". Much has changed since Abe's first visit in February 2017, just a month into the new Trump administration.

Will North Korea's Kim meet with Japanese PM Abe? This is based on the "unmentioned swipe" at the Trump administration in relation to a possible trade war.

So one of the main goals of Abe's visit to the USA is to dispel the abovementioned fears, to demonstrate the unity of views on the North Korean issue, and to give impetus to mutual efforts to coordinate actions regarding the North Korean nuclear issue.

The Asahi Shimbun reported Monday the USA agent exchanged views with Tokyo's intelligence service under the Cabinet Office.

China hopes to boost cooperation with Japan to maintain the world's free trade system, while strengthening bilateral economic cooperation at the same time, Wang said. "And it would reassure Japan and other USA trading partners in Asia that the strategic interests of the U.S.in the region are strong enough to overcome Trump's impulses". Trump pulled the US out of TPP shortly after his inauguration in early 2017.

US State Department spokeswoman Katrina Adams said Washington remained "committed to achieving the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" and its commitment to the defence of South Korea and Japan was "ironclad".

China owns roughly 95 percent of the world's rare earth minerals as of 2015, but this new supply would give Japan more economic standing in the field, CNN reports.

"Anxiety has grown in Tokyo over the prime minister's "special relationship" with Trump", she said.

"We expect it to be very positive", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday of Abe's visit.

In another scandal involving Abe's wife Akie, a Finance Ministry official told a nationalist school operator to lie over the hugely discounted sale of public land.

Returning back to China and Japan, then the first potent economic talks between both nations since 2010 is "eye-opening." . As a result, Abe is in a hard position in Florida because he does not want to accept new TPP negotiations, or even bilateral negotiations.

There are other levers Washington could also seek to use.

"A peace treaty may [also] seem appealing - but if we start pulling apart the legal basis for our alliance we will invite pressure, including within South Korea, to dismantle American forward presence in Asia, which will have a direct impact on the security of Australia". At stake are Mr Abe's personal credibility and Japan's long-term security.

As a result, trade and currency policies are likely to be a major subject of discussion during the Abe-Trump meeting, particularly as the United States agricultural lobby pushes for greater access to the Japanese market. Both will want to spend time away from cameras, trying to resolve their differences and putting a strong statesman-like face on as they struggle through this increasingly fraught era.
