Trump to meet emperor on his visit to Japan

US president to discuss North Korea with Prime Minister Abe

TOKYO -- U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with Japanese Emperor Akihito during his visit to Japan between Nov. 5 and 7, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Trump will discuss tensions with North Korea and other issues with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He will also meet with the families of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea.

It will be Trump's first visit to Japan since he took office in January. Trump and Abe are scheduled to play golf with Japanese professional golfer Hideki Matsuyama during Trump's stay.

"It will be a golden opportunity to show the strength of the U.S.-Japan alliance to the world," Suga said.
