Trump meets Japanese PM with Jared Kushner, Ivanka by his side
After the meeting, Abe said, “As an outcome of today's discussions, I am convinced Mr Trump is a leader in whom I can have great confidence. “Without confidence between the two nations, our alliance would never function in the future. The meeting had renewed my conviction that together with Mr Trump I will be able to establish a relationship of trus.”
However, the 90-minute discussions that even included Kushner and Ivanka were not disclosed to media.
Japan is one of Washington's closes allies, but its ministers were reportedly concerned during the run-up to the election by several of Trump's statements.
