WASHINGTON/TOKYO -- After blasting the Trans-Pacific Partnership on the campaign trail, and recently criticizing Japan for unfair trade practices, U.S. President Donald Trump has agreed with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to begin new economic talks between the two countries at Friday's White House summit.

The duo agreed to establish a new framework for economic dialogue led by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Taro Aso, the Japanese deputy prime minister and finance minister, Abe said. Pence will be making an early visit to Tokyo to kick start the talks.
