TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Economic Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Tuesday he will meet U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer in Washington on June 13 for the next round of U.S.-Japan trade talks.

Washington and Tokyo are in negotiations for a trade deal as U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration seeks to lower the U.S. trade deficit and boost exports to its major trading partners.
