On the first day, a dinner party by leaders from each country was held privately after 3:00 am, and it seems that opinions were exchanged on the theme of diplomacy and security.
In this context, Prime Minister Abe is expected to discuss the situation in Iran, where the correspondence between the United States and European countries is divided. It seems to explain. The North Korea issue, which repeatedly launches ballistic missiles, is also expected to be an agenda item.
On the evening of the 25th of Japan time, the second day of discussion will begin, and the discussion will be held over the trade friction between the United States and China, where recognition of the global economy and the response of countermeasures continue.
