"The U.S. government 'informally' asked Tokyo to nominate Trump after he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in June," the paper reported, citing unnamed Japanese government sources. Abe was "acceding to a request from Washington" when he made the nomination last autumn, the paper said.
