Tokyo stocks opened lower on Tuesday on lingering trade worries as US President Donald Trump warned he would slap huge new tariffs on China if his counterpart Xi Jinping does not attend the G20 this month.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index lost 0.22 percent or 45.94 points to 21,088.48 in early trade, while the broader Topix index was down 0.10 percent or 1.63 points at 1,551.31. (AFP)
