Reuters Studio - Tuesday, 18 April 2017
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has met Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso for talks on enhancing economic and commercial relations, which he said the White House were "impatient" to see deliver results. As David Pollard reports, Tokyo is the second stop on Pence's 10-day tour of Asia, a trip aimed at emphasising that President Trump wants to boost U.S. trade in the region even though he has abandoned the TPP trade pact.
