"If we can come to an arrangement on a new deal, that would certainly be something we would discuss", Trump said during a joint press conference at his private Mar-a-Lago club.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe courted the new American president with a golden driver not long after Donald Trump won the White House.

A senior administration official said CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who visited Pyongyang secretly in recent weeks, brought up the case of the three prisoners in his talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and the United States was hopeful for their release.

"The U.S.is committed to free, fair and reciprocal - very important word - trade, and we're committed to pursuing a bilateral trading relationship that benefits both of our great countries", Trump said.

The Trump-Abe summit began hours after reports that North and South Korea are negotiating a statement to formally end the war that began in 1950. Details, including a location, are still being worked out.

"I don't want to go back into TPP, but if they offered us a deal that I can't refuse on behalf of the United States, I would do it", he said.

Abe also vowed to increase efforts to realize the return of the abductees, saying, "If North Korea takes the right path, there could be a possible path to settle the unfortunate past and normalize diplomatic relations based on the Pyongyang Declaration signed between Japan and North Korea". "They are greatly contributing to USA industries and employment", Abe said.

Trump remain at odds on major trade issues after concluding two days of meetings in Florida but agree to hold talks on "free, fair and reciprocal" trade, without specifying what that could mean. Principal among them: allowing Japan an exemption from new USA steel and aluminum tariffs and persuading Trump to re-join the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

Most other key US allies - among them Australia, Canada, the European Union and Mexico - have already been granted exemptions to Trump's protectionist measures on steel and aluminum.

The two leaders also agreed to maintain the maximum level of pressure on North Korea and urge the country to take specific action toward denuclearization.

But on trade-an issue Trump has used to reward the U.S.'s closest allies-their differences appeared more entrenched than ever. "I think it's better for our country, I think it's better for our workers, and I much would prefer a bilateral deal, a deal directly with Japan". "We're having very good dialogue". But Wednesday brought public disagreements, as Trump spurned his guest's top economic and trade priorities.
