Japan's PM is set to become the first foreign leader to meet US President-elect Donald Trump, since the election last week.

Shinzo Abe said he wanted to "build trust" and "work together for prosperity and world peace", before leaving for his trip.

The meeting in New York comes amid concern over the foreign policy direction of Tokyo's biggest ally.

Trump has said Japan needs to pay more to maintain US troops on its soil.

He also condemned a major trade deal struck by President Obama with Japan and other Pacific Rim countries.

The US and Japan have been key allies since the end of World War Two, when the US helped Japan rebuild its economy.
