TOKYO -- Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said Wednesday he will try to arrange a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden soon, possibly by year-end, following up a chat on the sidelines of the United Nations climate conference.

Kishida returned to Japan on Sunday from the COP26 summit in Glasgow, where he met separately with the prime ministers of the U.K., Australia and Vietnam. He decided to go on the unusually short trip despite a tight political schedule for the opportunity to meet with world leaders.
