President Trump Meets PM Abe In Japan.

US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have wrapped up their bilateral talks and press conference.

Here are the key things to come out of it.

On Japan:

• Japan agreed to buy 105 F-35 stealth planes from the US. Trump said: “(They’re) stealth because the fact is you can’t see them.”

• Trump said there was a huge trade imbalance with Japan, but added that the two countries were working on a trade deal.

• Japan and the US will collaborate on sending astronauts to space. “We’ll be going to the moon,” Trump said.

On North Korea:

• Trump said North Korea had enormous potential: “It’s all waterfront property, it’s a great location as we used to say in the real estate business.”

• Trump said he wasn’t worried about the North Korean missile tests and added that they didn’t violate UN resolutions, despite his national security adviser John Bolton saying just days ago that there was “no doubt” the tests were a violation.

• Trump agreed with North Korea that former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden is a “low IQ individual.”

On Iran:

• Trump said he wasn’t looking for a regime change in Iran — instead, he wanted to see no nuclear weapons.

On China:

• Trump said the US wasn’t ready to make a trade deal with China, but added that he believed there will be a deal in the future.
