"Our country's position is that TPP is the best for both of the countries".

President Donald Trump is not exempting Japan from the steel and aluminum tariffs at this time. Under an agreement brokered in Stockholm in May 2014, North Korea undertook to reinvestigate all abductions of Japanese citizens in what appeared to be a significant breakthrough. "We will work to realize economic growth of the free and open Indo-Pacific region based on fair rules". Trump and Abe spent Wednesday morning golfing at one of Trump's nearby courses in their latest show of "golf diplomacy", according to pictures tweeted from their Twitter accounts and those of their aides.

"The U.S.is committed to free, fair and reciprocal - very important word - trade, and we're committed to pursuing a bilateral trading relationship that benefits both of our great countries", Trump said.

Abe on Tuesday praised Trump for his courage in agreeing to meet with Kim and suggested he and Trump had already come to terms on several issues.

Trump said it was clear from their discussions that the abductees were "one of the truly most important things on Shinzo's mind".

The director the White House's National Economic Council, Larry Kudlow, said on Tuesday the US government wants Japan to open up its politically sensitive agriculture market, but this is a move Japan is likely to resist.

Pyongyang has acknowledging abducting 13 Japanese, while Tokyo maintains North Korea abducted 17.

"Unless they offer us a deal that we can not refuse, I would not go back into TPP". We do this not only against Japan but also the other allies ... North Korea says eight others have died and denies the remaining four entered its territory.

But when pressed on the economic disagreements, Abe repeatedly consulted notes as he tried to sidestep questions on the contentious issues, instead returning to Trump's favored call for developing a "reciprocal" trade relationship with the U.S. It marked a stark departure from Abe's pre-summit hopes of coaxing the U.S. back into the TPP.

The U.S. itself is pushing for the release of three Americans.

Abe, who has been concerned over failed past attempts at dialogue with Pyongyang, said that "past mistakes should never be repeated".

■The two leaders agreed to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea until its denuclearization, and urge it to take specific action.

"There's a bright path available to North Korea when it achieves denuclearization in a complete and verifiable and irreversible way".
