Japan ratified the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement on Friday, hours before the inauguration of Donald Trump as U.S. president. Trump has pledged to withdraw from the 12-party pact.

After the Cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe approved the TPP Friday morning, the government notified New Zealand, the country to which the pact is entrusted, that Japan had completed its domestic procedures.

The TPP appears unlikely to take force as Trump has pledged to pull the U.S. out of the deal as soon as he takes office.
