U.S., Japan unlikely to wrap up trade deal by May TPP talks: Japan official

U.S., Japan unlikely to wrap up trade deal by May TPP talks: Japan official

U.S. President Barack Obama attends a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Akasaka guesthouse in TokyoBy Linda Sieg TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan and the United States have found "common ground" to forge a two-way trade deal, but may not be able to resolve remaining sticking points in time for a mid-May meeting of top negotiators seeking a broad regional deal, a senior Japanese official said. Marathon talks during U.S. President Barack Obama's state visit to Tokyo last week yielded progress – hailed by the two sides as a "key milestone" – but the two sides stopped short of announcing a deal vital to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a 12-nation bloc that would extend from Asia to Latin America. The upbeat tone, however, was a contrast to the emphasis on "gaps" after previous rounds of talks on a bilateral deal that has been stalemated by differences over access to Japan's agriculture market and both countries' car markets. "What Obama's visit produced after many lengthy negotiations was a common ground on which the two sides believe we can continue to work to find a mutually acceptable solution," the senior Japanese official told Reuters.

Amari speaks to the media after meetings with Froman in TokyoBy Krista Hughes and Kaori Kaneko WASHINGTON/TOKYO (Reuters) – Next week's meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is a good opportunity to give impetus to Pacific trade negotiations but will not seal a deal, a senior U.S. administration official said on Friday. Talks between the United States and Japan seen as vital to a broader regional trade pact had narrowed to a few critical areas and will resume again on Monday, officials of both countries said, as negotiators hustle to prepare for Thursday's summit. Breaking a U.S.-Japan deadlock over access to Japan's farm and auto markets is seen as key to finalising the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a 12-nation trade bloc that would stretch from Asia to Latin America. When the leaders meet, they are likely to review progress so far on the trade talks and give some impetus to negotiators to move on to the next stage, the senior official said.
