TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday he wants to confirm further cooperation on defence and the economy with Australian premier Tony Abbott, who is visiting Tokyo.
Japanese media reported that Abe and Abbott will announce the basic bilateral agreement later in the day, featuring cuts to Tokyo's tariffs on Australian beef and Canberra ending its duty on cars.
Abe also said during a meeting with fellow ruling party members that he will exchange views on issues over the economy, North Korea, and defence with U.S. President Barack Obama when he visits Japan later this month.
