Japan pushes for 'TPP 11' progress with Tokyo meeting

Quicker consensus on rules to suspend could bring broad deal in November

TOKYO -- Chief negotiators from the Trans-Pacific Partnership's remaining participants will meet in Tokyo starting Thursday, looking to proceed on the trade deal despite the U.S. decision to abandon the accord.

The 11 remaining nations have decided to suspend some of the rules in the TPP that were championed by the U.S., on the assumption that the country will return to the fold in the future. The Tokyo meeting, announced Friday by Japan's government, likely will focus on debating which items should make that list.
