Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had a 12-minute phone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday night, in which Abe offered his condolences for the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 people dead, a senior Japanese official said.

Abe told Trump that Japan “stands by 100 percent” the U.S. and its citizens. Trump in return said Abe is “a true friend,” according to the official who briefed reporters after the talks.
