LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will host her Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe for talks at her official country residence on Friday, May's spokesman told reporters on Tuesday.

The talks come as Britain prepares to hold a national election in June, before embarking upon exit negotiations with the European Union which could affect large Japanese investments in British sectors like the car manufacturing industry.
