Jiji Press TOKYO (Jiji Press) — U.S. Vice President Mike Pence may visit Japan in November to meet with its deputy prime minister and finance minister, Taro Aso, for the third round of a bilateral economic dialogue, it was learned Friday.
Expected agenda items include a possible trade agreement on goods, or TAG, between the two countries, Japanese government sources said.
Pence may also hold a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, according to the sources.
