Trump to Host Japanese Prime Minister at Mar-a-Lago Resort

Abe and Trump will meet for two days beginning April 18, prior to Trump's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in May.

Now, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is set to meet Trump again in the United States on April 17-18 to discuss ways on keeping the pressure on North Korea, the menace in East Asia which has kept all the regional powers anxious with its nuclear ambitions.

The discussions come a time when Trump is seeking to change the USA trading relationships across the globe, claiming that Japan among other countries has long taken advantage of the United States.

The two leaders will discuss the global campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea in advance of President Trumps planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The venue of the meeting will be Trump's luxurious resort in Florida - Mar-a-Lago.

Tension on the Korean Peninsula has thawed in recent months with Seoul and Pyongyang agreeing to hold a summit on April 27, the first meeting between the leaders of the two sides in 11 years.

The Tiangong-1 was last used by astronauts in 2013, when a three-strong team spent 12 days on the vessel conducting experiments. And one hour still means nearly one revolution around the Earth", said Holger Krag, the head of Esa's space debris office.

The US state department Monday said that Alice Wells, the US diplomat for South Asia, and Susan Thornton, the state department official in-charge of the East Asia and Pacific affairs, will lead the delegation traveling to India.

The president and prime minister will also discuss the bilateral trade relationship between the two countries, the White House said. Besides North Korea, they will "explore ways to expand fair and reciprocal trade and investment ties", it said.

Abe has said he wants to remind Mr. Trump of shorter-range missiles and other North Korean security threats for Japan, and seek US help on the issue of Japanese abducted by North Korea decades ago.

The abductees' families last Friday urged Abe to seek Trump's help, saying this could be their last chance to win their aging loved ones' release. North Korea, after years of denials, acknowledged in 2002 abducting 13 Japanese.
