Abe Wants G-20 to Unite on Trade       06/26 06:07

   TOKYO (AP) -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has pledged to seek a 
consensus on free trade and other contentious issues at this week's summit of 
the Group of 20 countries in Osaka.

   Abe expressed hope that the U.S. and China will resolve their trade dispute 
when their leaders meet during the summit on Friday and Saturday.

   Planned talks between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi 
Jinping on the sidelines of the meeting are attracting wide attention.

   Abe also called for international effort to restore peace in the Middle 
East, where tensions have escalated amid a dispute between the U.S. and Iran 
over its unraveling nuclear deal.

   Abe was speaking at a news conference on Wednesday marking the end of the 
parliamentary session.
