Japan's Abe seeks to demonstrate unshakable Japan-U.S. alliance

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, visiting Washington for a summit meeting with President Donald Trump, said on Friday he aimed to build a relationship of trust with the new U.S. leader and underscore the sturdiness of the Japan-U.S. alliance.

“I would like to clearly demonstrate the unshakable Japan-U.S. alliance to the world,” Abe told a U.S. Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting before the summit with Trump later in the day, when the two leaders will discuss, among other things, regional security and bilateral trade.
