Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he wants to "build trust" with the elected President of the United States Donald trump when they meet in new York as it seeks to protect long-standing ties between the two countries.
"Japan-America is the axis of diplomacy and security of Japan. The Alliance becomes alive only when there is trust between us. I would like to build such trust with Mr. trump." Prime Minister Abe, like other Asian leaders, aims to find out how serious trump was saying when he proposed the withdrawal of American troops from the region.
The senior aide Abe, Katsuyuki Kawai said that the members of the transition team trump's claim that previous observations trump should not be taken literally. Not hard to understand why Prime Minister Abe wants to talk to trump. Deals trump that Japan, which until last year was not pacifist Constitution, should obtain nuclear weapons to protect itself from North Korea has caused particular consternation.
"Japan would be better if she can protect herself from this maniac of North Korea," said Anderson Cooper in March, according to trump. "All people share the opinion that we should not worry about each word or phrase said during the campaign, Mr. trump," said Katsuki kawaii.
He held talks with Senator Tom Cotton, who is rumored as a possible candidate for the post of Minister of defense and Devin Nunes, Chairman of the intelligence Committee of the house of representatives on Wednesday. NÃºÃ±ez told reporters: "Mr. trump is a very quick learner, I think he will be very, very interested in all matters relating to Asia."
Tomohiro, Taniguchi, special Advisor to the Prime Minister said that Abe proposed a meeting during his congratulatory call Trump on November 10. "The statements which appeared in the last few days from trump's advisors indicate that trump plans to implement robust US military presence in Asia to provide strong support for Taiwan, and to strengthen the alliances of the United States."
Abe also wants to know how trump is planning to approach North Korea, which has ramped up its testing of missiles this year, including nuclear warheads.
