India to host dialogue with Japan and USA to countervail China?

India to host dialogue with Japan and USA to countervail China? India to host dialogue with Japan and USA to countervail China?

President Donald Trump will host Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida for a mid-April summit, the White House said on Monday.

In a statement, the White House did not mention the abduction issue. The Trump administration popularised the term Indo-Pacific instead of Asia-Pacific to corner China in its own backyard. Mr. Trump has said he will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by the end of May.

President Trump has expressed his belief that Kim will negotiate for peace in the region, saying on Twitter that there was a "good chance that Kim Jong Un will do what is right for his people and for humanity", when the two meet. He said the trade deficit between the countries must be corrected, and Japan has not been exempted from Trump's list of countries whose steel and aluminum imports will be subject to tariffs.

It said only that Abe and Trump would meet at Trump's Florida estate to "discuss global campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea" and to "explore ways to expand fair and reciprocal trade and investment ties between the United States and Japan".

A lot of engagements are underway ever since the news of the probable Trump-Kim meeting broke. It is Abe's second visit to Trump's Florida estate.

There are signs of a thaw on the peninsula, with global attention fixed on two closely related events - an inter-Korean leaders' summit scheduled for April 27, and a first-ever U.S.

The prime minister said he will directly request Trump to bring up the issue of Japanese abductees in North Korea when the US president meets North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a summit in May.

The India-US-Japan trilateral dialogue was started in 2011 when Hillary Clinton was the US secretary of state.
