Abe, Trump have dinner, discuss N.Korea
NHK -- Nov 06
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and visiting US President Donald Trump have had dinner together in Tokyo's Ginza district.

Abe and Trump and their wives headed for a "teppanyaki" restaurant in the presidential limousine on Sunday evening.

The 2 couples had a photo call at the entrance of the restaurant.

Sources say they had spiny lobsters and Japanese beef steaks cooked on an iron plate.

They also say the leaders discussed North Korea and other issues during dinner for about half an hour, with only interpreters present.

Abe saw the Trumps off at the restaurant and told reporters that it was a very fruitful dinner. He added that the president was delighted.

Earlier in the day, the leaders played golf together, joined by Japan's top golfer, Hideki Matsuyama.

Abe and Trump will hold their 5th one-on-one talks on Monday.

The president is scheduled to meet the families of some of the Japanese citizens who were abducted by North Korea.
