U.S. President Trump asked Japan PM to buy farm products - Kyodo

TOKYO, Aug 13 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has directly asked Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to buy farm products worth a 'huge amount', Kyodo news agency reported on Tuesday, without citing sources.

Japan and the United States have agreed to target a broad deal on bilateral trade by September, seeking to bridge differences of opinion over tariffs on beef and the automobile sector, the Nikkei business daily reported earlier this month. (Reporting by Kaori Kaneko Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
