Donald Trump Arrived in Tokyo

  •  World

U.S. President Donald Trump, who arrived in Tokyo on Saturday for a four-day state visit, will get down to business on Sunday with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe — by playing golf and watching sumo, reports The Japantimes.

But, as strange as it may seem, these are serious diplomatic events for the two leaders, who have enjoyed a close personal relationship since Trump became president in January 2017.

 Officials and experts have said the top priority for Trump’s visit for both sides is to show off the two leaders’ ties and highlight a strong Japan-U.S. alliance in the face of threats from China and North Korea.

On Thursday, a senior Japanese diplomat briefing reporters in Tokyo on the visit emphasized that the purpose is “to send out signals” that “the Japan-U.S. alliance is stronger than ever” and that the two countries will take the lead in maintaining peace and stability in the region.

Separately, in news that would have been well-received in Tokyo, a senior U.S. official said Wednesday that trade would not be a top issue, according to media reports.
