Japanese prime minister begins meetings in Washington

WASHINGTON -- Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga kicked off his meetings in Washington on Friday by meeting U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, promising to assist in tackling the root cause of mass migration to America's southern border, a topic Harris has been tasked with.

Suga and Harris discussed the flow of immigrants into the U.S. from Central American countries, a Japanese government readout said after the meeting. Suga said Japan would like to work with the U.S. on addressing the root causes of migration, such as poverty, public security and natural disasters.
