TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has informed the U.S., the chair of the Group of Seven nations this year, that he will attend a leaders' meeting if it takes place in June as the White House hopes.

U.S. President Donald Trump said this week that he may again host an in-person summit of the G-7 leaders in or near Washington, after earlier canceling the meeting amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
