Trump plans to meet Putin on Asia tour to create UNITED FRONT against North Korea

Trump's five-country Asia trip begins, Putin meeting confirmed

President Donald Trump holds up a hat that he and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe signed at Kasumigaseki Country Club, Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, in Kawagoe, Japan. Abe will be looking for a united front against North Korea and reassurances that the USA will stand by its treaty obligations to defend Japan if attacked.

Since taking office, though, Trump has bonded with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The low- key start was a prelude to the formal talks planned in Tokyo Monday. He is expected to play golf with Abe, have tea with the emperor and empress, and meet with relatives of Japanese kidnapped by North Korea in the 1970s and 1980s. He was the first to call Trump after the election, and rushed to NY days later to meet the president-elect and present him with a pricey, gold Honma golf driver.

A senior White House official told reporters that the two leaders did not keep score, but enjoyed each other's company.

"The relationship is really extraordinary".

"We like each other and our countries like each other". Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump may meet at an Asian economic summit in Vietnam next week.

He said there was a "great probability" that the two leaders would discuss the situation on the Korean peninsula if they met.

Juergen Klopp's side won at West Ham 4-1 to secure successive league victories for the first time since August. Swansea City dropped into the relegation zone after slumping to a home defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion.

Abe said he and Trump were able to "carry out in depth discussion, at times touching on various hard issues". Both men are avid golfers.

"We're in the midst of having very major discussions on many subjects, including North Korea and trade and we're doing very well", Trump told reporters in front of a restaurant in Tokyo alongside Abe. She said that the Japanese believe it is already "seeing it pay off", including when Trump agreed to meet with the families of Japanese citizens kidnapped by the North Korean regime, an important issue for Tokyo.

Mr Trump has ramped up his tough rhetoric against North Korea after arriving in Japan for a 12-day trip - the longest Asian tour by a United States leader since George HW Bush in 1992. The president warned of the consequences of crossing what he called the "most fearsome fighting force in the history of our world".

On the first leg of his five-nation trip, Trump addressed servicemen and women at the Yokota airbase and made some strong remarks aimed at North Korea - including a thinly veiled warning targeting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

He said: "We want to get it solved".

Each service member embodies the warrior creed, Trump said, adding their devotion, prowess and expertise comprise the US military as the fiercest fighting force in world history.
