The results of the Lighthizer-Motegi talks will be announced at a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expected on Sunday on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, the Nikkei said.
Japan will cut its tariffs on U.S. beef and pork to the levels applied to members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, the Nikkei said. Trump pulled America out of the TPP, which had been championed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.
“I think how we proceed the talks from now on, and the time schedule, will be announced at the summit meeting scheduled in Biarritz,” Motegi said.
“We negotiated to protect Japan’s position, our position on agriculture,” he said.
Trump is unhappy with Tokyo’s large trade surplus and he could pile pressure on Japan to curb its auto exports to the United States and open its highly protected agriculture market to fix what he calls unfair trade imbalances.
Motegi declined to comment on details but said the negotiations were based on the two nations’ joint statement in September.
