TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga plans to propose a high-level dialogue with the U.S. on reducing carbon footprints when he meets President-elect Joe Biden in the coming months, Nikkei has learned.

Suga plans to visit Washington as early as February for his first summit with Biden, who will take office on Jan. 20. The plan is to have the two sides agree to the framework then, with the first meeting taking place by March, seeking to spur bilateral cooperation in clean energy technology.
