Abe, Trump meeting being arranged for Feb. 10

In Saturday's phone call with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump reiterated his initiative to create jobs in the USA and requested that the Japanese auto industry contribute, government officials revealed Sunday.

Trump affirmed the "ironclad" U.S. commitment to ensuring the security of Japan, it said.

The previous United States administration accused Russian Federation of hacking the U.S. election campaign ahead of Trump's victory in the November 8 presidential election.

Mr Putin said he "sees the USA as a most important partner in the fight against worldwide terrorism", according to a readout of the call from the Kremlin that also described the conversation as "positive and businesslike".

Abe said that at the coming meeting, "I would like to have a candid exchange of views on the economy and security issues as a whole". The two sides discussed the automotive sector in line with comments Trump made in early January criticizing Japan for unfair trade practices.

The conversations come one day after Trump's meeting with Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, the first foreign leader to visit his White House. China is not a signatory to the TPP.

Trump declared that the United States will withdraw from the TPP and said he will proceed with negotiations for bilateral trade agreements instead. They agreed to discuss policy details, including the TPP decision and a bilateral trade agreement, at their February 10 meeting in Washington.

The leaders also discussed matters related to the security situation in East Asia, as well as U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis' trip to Japan next week, the Japanese official said.

In particular, Abe and Trump plan to share their assessment of China's high-handed maritime advances in the East China Sea and South China Sea as well as North Korea's nuclear and missile development.
