During a meeting with Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Hiroshige Seko on Thursday, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer stressed the importance of reducing the U.S. trade deficit with Japan.

Lighthizer did not allude to the possibility of a free trade agreement between the two countries, Seko told reporters after the two met in Washington. However, Lighthizer himself has expressed a desire to reach a bilateral free trade pact with Japan.
