President Trump will hold a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

For a meeting with Prime Minister of Japan and his wife the first lady of the United States chose a flared MIDI dress in black-and-white striped Carolina Herrera and white pumps by Christian Louboutin.

President Trump, on the other hand, went with a navy and white striped tie that complemented his wife's chic yacht club ensemble.

Japan's politically sensitive trade surplus with the U.S. edged down in March, government data showed Wednesday, as the two countries' leaders held talks over the thorny issue of bilateral trade.

Pompeo became the most senior US official known to have met Kim when he visited Pyongyang to discuss a planned summit with US President Donald Trump.

The two-day Trump-Abe summit played out amid growing tensions between the two countries over North Korea and trade.

Abe's aides hope that the meeting with Trump will showcase the leaders' close personal relationship, as the two summits past year did.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested to reporters that the U.S. would like to negotiate a bilateral free trade deal with Japan.


The summit with Abe comes as the President prepares for historic talks with Kim, a prospect that Abe has warned will come with risks.

Aligning himself closely with Trump has been a politically risky move for Abe, who faces controversy at home over a series of alleged corruption scandals.

Melania Trump and Akie Abe left the president's Mar-a-Lago mansion for an afternoon at the nearby Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, a Gilded Age mansion and Palm Beach landmark. During remarks ahead of Wednesday's trade talks, Trump delivered a stern warning about unfair economic practices and vowed to stand up for American workers.

"Japan and ourselves are locked, and we are very unified on the subject of North Korea", Trump said Tuesday. Trump said on Twitter.

Besides North Korea, Mr Abe was expected to have made a case for the suspension of United States tariffs on aluminium and steel - a favour extended to several American allies but not yet to Japan.

Abe said that Trump had promised to bring up the Japanese abductee issue in his meeting with Kim. Five have been returned to Japan. Japan has demanded further investigation. Iizuka added that he thinks the USA leader could offer Pyongyang something in return for such a commitment.

"As I've said before, there is a bright path available to North Korea when it achieves denuclearization in a complete and verifiable and irreversible way", he added.
