Abe and Bush hold meeting in mountain retreat

By Jennie Wander

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Bush held a meeting Friday in Washington about North Korea's nuclear weapons program, CNN said.

In February Abe decided to ween out the use of nuclear weapons, however the shut down of the North's nuclear reactor has not happened yet, CNN said.

Abe has faced some criticism in the United States and his approval ratings have droped, Pioneer Press said. However, this meeting is held during one of the best times between Tokyo and Washington in years, Pioneer Press said.
