Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned today that “no country benefits from retaliatory trade restrictions.” And, ahead of the G7 leaders summit on June 8-9, Abe said “my message is G7 should play a role in free and fair global economic development.”

Separately, Abe said that ahead of the Kim-Trump summit in Singapore on June 12, he will meet Trump to “coordinate in order to advance progress on the nuclear issue, missiles and – most importantly – the abductees issue.” A sticky point is that upon declaring peace in the Korean peninsula, UK could eventually have to reduce military forces in South Korea. And Japan’s constitution, diplomatic policies and national security policies all will have to be totally reviewed for the completely new situation.
