The US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump met Japan's new Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, on Monday at Tokyo's Imperial Palace.

Trump is the first world leader to meet Naruhito, who acceded to the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1, after his father Emperor Akihito abdicated on 30 April.

Trump is in Japan to discuss a trade deal with Japan Prime Minister Shinz┼Ź Abe, while his trade negotiations with China and nuclear talks with North Korea both seem to have reached an impasse.

During his visit to Japan, Trump is also expected to address troops at a US base, highlighting the military alliance between both countries.
