TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President-elect Donald Trump may look to hold their first meeting on Nov. 17 in New York, government officials said Thursday.

Following a 20-minute telephone conversation between Abe and Trump, Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Hagiuda told a press briefing that the pair had agreed to the meeting and to work together on a number of issues.

The proposed meeting between Abe and Trump would come ahead of Abe's planned attendance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum leaders' summit slated for Nov 19-20 in Peru.
