U.S. President Barack Obama meets with the heads of Japan on his first stop of a four-nation tour in Asia. This morning brought the official arrival ceremony for President Barack Obama at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. There, he met with Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko as part of his formal state visit to Japan. The president also met with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe again, this morning, to talk business, specifically the TPP trade talks between the world's first-and-third-biggest economies, but in their joint press conference, later, they did not announce any break-throughs. "President Obama and I instructed the ministers to continue these talks so as to bring to a conclusion the remaining issues so as to bring about a major conclusion to the TPP talks as a whole," Abe said. Obama also addressed the ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe. "With respect to Russia and Ukraine, we've been very clear about the fact that there is not going to be a military solution to the problem in Ukraine," President Obama said. "And we have continued to hold out the prospect, the possibility to resolve this issue diplomatically." And the ongoing territorial dispute over when Japan calls the Senkaku Islands. "It would be a profound mistake to continue to see escalation around this issue rather than dialogue," said President Obama. As part of his four-nation trip, Obama heads to South Korea on Friday before stops in Malaysia and the Philippines.
