TOKYO -- The results of the U.S. presidential election Tuesday will shape the diplomatic calendar for Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, whose first official visit there could come by year-end or next year depending on who wins.

If President Donald Trump is reelected, the U.S. could host a Group of Seven summit before the end of the year, giving Suga an opportunity for a one-on-one meeting with the president around that time.
