Trump to discuss North Korea issue with Abe

U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will hold a meeting at the White House today to discuss a range of topics including future actions to take towards North Korea following recent developments in denuclearization talks.

"It's an important opportunity for the leaders to exchange views on recent developments with North Korea as well and to coordinate future actions… aimed at achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea," Sputnik cited a senior U.S. administration official as saying.

The leaders will also review recent developments in the Indo-Pacific region and discuss next steps to address any challenges.

In addition, Trump and Abe are also expected to discuss efforts to enhance trade and investment between the countries and priorities for the G-20 Finance Ministerial that will be held in Osaka, Japan in June.
