  • Description

    Senior government Ministers from the United States and Japan have been meeting in Tokyo to try and find a common approach to world trade and monetary problems, as well as creating a more balanced bilateral relationship.

    On the first day of talks (16 JULY) the U.S. Secretary of State William Rogers, proposed cooperation rather than competition for dwindling energy sources. Mr. Rogers, who's heading the U.S. delegation, suggested the development of a joint uranium enrichment plant and joint exploration of resources, including those in Siberia, to meet the world energy crisis.

    Mr. Frederick Dent, the U.S. Commerce Secretary, is also attending the two days of talks.

    The Japanese delegation, headed by the Foreign Minister, Masayoshi Ohira, includes the Japanese Finance Minister Kiichi Aichi and the International Trade Minister, Yasuhiro Nakasone. The meeting is the ninth of the US-Japan Committee on trade and economic affairs in the last 12 years.

    Both sides stressed early in the meeting that improvements in their often uneasy trade relationship had cleared the way for substantial discussions on reforms of the world monetary system and forthcoming international trade talks in Tokyo.
