Japanese Prime Minister Address to Joint Meeting of Congress Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe addressed a joint meeting of Congress, the first Japanese leader to address both chambers. The prime minister called for closer ties with the U.S., saying “Let the two of us, "America and Japan, join our hands together and do our best to make the world a better, a much better, place to live.” He also said Japan was undertaking domestic reforms necessary to take part in the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. “Japan’s agriculture is at a crossroads,” he said, and “in order for it to survive it has to change now.” Prime Minister Abe also addressed Japan’s role in World War II, saying, “I offer with profound respect my eternal condolences to the souls of all American people that were lost during World War II.” close
