TOKYO, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed higher after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump reached a bilateral trade agreement, while carmakers advanced on Washington's promise to exempt Japan from higher auto tariffs.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average ended up 28.09 points, or 0.13 percent, from Wednesday at 22,048.24.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, finished 3.19 points, or 0.20 percent, higher at 1,623.27 after hitting its highest level since early December.
