New Delhi, September 25
In a signal of close bilateral ties between India and Japan, PM Narendra Modi had a phone call with Japan’s new PM Suga Yoshihide on Friday.
Outgoing Japanese PM Shinzo Abe held a digital bilateral summit with Modi as a mark of deep friendship before demitting office due to ill-health. That the new Japanese PM puts India high up on his dialing list confirms the next regime’s interest in sustaining the close ties.
“The two leaders agreed that the India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership has made great advances over the last few years and expressed their intention to further strengthen this relationship based upon mutual trust and shared values,” said an official news release. — TNS
