India, Japan to enhance ‘multifaceted’ relations

| | New Delhi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe will look at ways to enhance “multifaceted” relations between the two countries and carry forward their special strategic and global partnership when they meet for the annual Summit on Wednesday.

Abe begins his two-day visit on Wednesday during which he and Modi will hold the 12th India-Japan annual Summit in Gujarat capital Gandhinagar.

The summit takes place amid rising tension in the Far East after North Korea tested a hydrogen bomb, launched a ballistic missile over Japan, and the growing Chinese assertiveness in the South China Sea. This will be the fourth annual summit between Modi and Abe.

The two leaders have met 10 times in the last three years, with the last being on the sidelines of the G20 Summit at Hamburg in July. Prime Minister Modi had visited Japan in November last year.

“The two leaders will review the recent progress in the multifaceted cooperation between India and Japan under the framework of their special strategic and global partnership and will set its future direction,” MEA said in a statement.
