Asian markets were trading mostly in green but Japan's Nikkei 225 fell due to caution ahead of a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, scheduled to take place on Friday.

Equities in other regions were higher, tracking a rise in commodity prices led by copper and iron ore.

Automobile stocks in Japan led the market down, as overnight strength in the yen hit export-focused companies.
