WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump will hold a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe later this week before taking the Japanese leader to his Florida resort for the weekend, the White House said Tuesday.

"As previously announced, he will visit the White House for meetings on the 10th of February. The president has also invited him down to Mar-a-Lago and the two leaders will travel there for the weekend," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

"This is a testament to the importance the United States places on the bilateral relationship and the strength of our alliance and the deep economic ties between the United States and Japan," he said.

Abe is one of the first foreign leaders to hold a summit with Trump.

Trump held his first such summit with British Prime Minister Theresa May late last month.
