Washington, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th Apr, 2019 ) :Two days of trade talks between the US and Japan concluded Tuesday in Washington with a focus on the sensitive subject of agriculture, as US negotiators say they want a more open Japanese market.
"The United States and Japan discussed trade issues involving goods, including agriculture, as well as the need to establish high standards in the area of digital trade," US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in a statement.
Lighthizer's statement said he and Japanese Economic Revitalization Minister Toshimitsu Motegi agreed that the two countries will meet again in the "near future" as part of the ongoing trade talks.
The Japanese minister had indicated Friday that the first priority in the talks should be to decide which areas were up for negotiation.
