– Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida plans to make a trip to the United States to meet President Joe Biden as early as January, the Nikkei newspaper reported on Friday.

The Japanese government was unable to secure Kishida’s first visit in office to Washington this year and will now explore opportunities in January or beyond, the newspaper reported.

Japan’s public broadcaster NHK had said earlier this month Kishida was likely to cancel a planned trip to the U.S. this month due to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
