Pompeo hopes trade deal done by U.N. meet

ReutersWASHINGTON (Reuters) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday he was looking forward to a completed Japan-U.S. trade pact at the United Nations General Assembly in New York later this month.

Pompeo said on Twitter, “Progress made on the U.S.-#Japan trade deal at the G7 Summit will further our strong economic partnership: a huge win for both nations.”

He said the two countries had reached consensus on agricultural, digital and industrial issues, adding, “Looking forward for a completed deal at UNGA.”
