Japanese PM to Visit Argentina Next Week

TOKYO – Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Buenos Aires early next week in what will be the first official visit by a Japanese head of government to Argentina in 57 years, Tokyo announced Wednesday.

Abe, during his day-long visit on Monday, is scheduled to meet with Argentine President Mauricio Macri and take part in an economic forum, a Japanese Foreign Ministry spokesperson told EFE.

The last official visit by a Japanese prime minister to Argentina came in 1959 when Abe’s maternal grandfather – Nobusuke Kishi, who governed from February 1957 to July 1960 – traveled to the South American nation.

Abe will attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Lima this weekend and then travel to Argentina, which is not an APEC member.

During his two-day stay in Lima, Abe will take part in an event with the Japanese community in Peru and hold bilateral meetings with Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Before landing in South America, the Japanese prime minister will make a stopover in New York Thursday to meet U.S. President-elect Donald Trump with an eye on reinforcing bilateral relations.

Trump’s victory in the recent presidential election has sparked concern in Tokyo over a possible abrupt shift in key aspects of Japanese-U.S. relations, particularly as pertains to their bilateral security treaty and the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, which the president-elect staunchly opposes.
