NEW YORK (Reuters) - Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said U.S. President Donald Trump agreed on Wednesday not to impose national-security tariffs on Japanese.

“I clearly confirmed to President Trump that the Japan-U.S. joint statement means additional tariffs will not be imposed on (Japanese) autos or auto parts, and President Trump acknowledged this” Abe told a news conference in New York after meeting with Trump.

“I believe President Trump and I were able to confirm this.”
