DANANG, Vietnam -- Ministers from the 11 remaining Trans-Pacific Partnership nations reaffirmed Friday that they have reached an agreement in principle on bringing into effect the trade pact, the Japanese economic and fiscal policy minister told reporters.

"We reconfirmed that there was nothing wrong with what we agreed to Thursday, including even the most minor language," Toshimitsu Motegi said after ministers from the so-called TPP 11 reconvened Friday night for talks.
