Japan’s top government spokesman said on Monday he did not think Tokyo had compromised too much in trade talks with the United States.

“Negotiations have been underway based on a joint statement the two countries agreed on last September,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference.

Suga declined to comment when asked whether there was still a chance the United States could impose additional tariffs on Japanese automobiles.
