Despite the frigid temperatures in the East Coast of America, Melania was showing off how to dress for a much warmer climate while hosting Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie for dinner at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach on Tuesday.

Kudlow plays a central role in economic policies of the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump and Japan's Shinzo Abe are expected to discuss trade issues and North Korea during the two-day summit.

Trump reaffirmed his desire at the news conference to address trade imbalances with Japan, saying he preferred one-on-one talks to negotiate a bilateral deal aimed at trimming the United States trade deficit.

In between, Trump and Abe enjoyed a almost five-hour round of golf at the nearby Trump International Golf Club.

As reported by Hindustan Times , the NIA took over the probe in 2011, and arrested four people linked to a Hindu extremist outfit. Patra demanded that Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his predecessor Sonia Gandhi apologise for defaming Hindus.

And Trump tweeted on Friday that Japan "has hit us hard on trade for years". The president said the talks will take place in early June, possibly sooner. Those diplomats then personally delivered to Trump an offer for a meeting with Kim, which the president accepted.

Kim is expected to meet South Korea´s President Moon Jae-in next week for landmark talks at which discussion of a formal peace declaration is now on the cards. Melania described the late first lady, who passed at the age of 92, as a "woman of strength" and praised her dedicated service to the American people. But on the issue of trade, the two leaders did not walk away seeing eye to eye.

Abe said that Trump had promised to bring up the Japanese abductee issue in his meeting with Kim.

On the DPRK and its nuclear weapons and missiles program Abe got resounding assurances from United States President Donald Trump that Washington had his back. "I am very grateful for your commitment", he told Trump.

The Japanese government has officially listed 17 people as abductees, but there are strong suspicions that dozens more citizens were snatched to train Pyongyang's spies in the Japanese language and culture. Five have been returned to Japan. "It requires close consultations with other concerned nations, as well as North Korea", the official said. Japan has demanded further investigation.
