TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to visit the United States in April for talks with President Donald Trump, both sides confirmed Monday.

Abe said he would ask Trump to bring up the issue of past North Korean abductions of Japanese citizens, during the U.S. president's expected summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. 

"I will request in person that President Trump raise the abduction issue, which is the most important question (for Japan), during an upcoming U.S.-North Korean summit," Abe said.

The White House released a statement confirming the talks at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Florida resort April 17-18. 

"The two leaders will discuss the international campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea in advance of President Trump’s planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un," the White House said. 

"President Trump and Prime Minister Abe will explore ways to expand fair and reciprocal trade and investment ties between the United States and Japan, two of the world’s wealthiest and most innovative economies."
