Both leaders highlighted the advantages of free trade on Sunday. The Japanese premier pressed mediators to strike the agreement soon, saying Japan and Europe must close an economic partnership to signify their commitment.

The German chancellor backed Abe's remarks, slamming the bloc for its decision-making process. She said this is not a blame game and they frequently can't agree.
