Progress Cited in U.S./Japan Trade Talks

TOKYO (AP) - U.S. leaders say they've reached a breakthrough with Japan on a stalled regional trade pact.

U.S. and Japanese leaders have emerged after two days of around-the-clock negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership during President Barack Obama's visit to Tokyo.

The U.S. says the two sides have narrowed differences on market access issues related to agriculture and automobiles, two key sectors that have deadlocked negotiations.

The Japanese side is less upbeat, citing progress but no basic agreement.
