Japanese PM Shinzo Abe calls Modi one of his ‘most dependable’ friends

"Prime Minister Modi is an outstanding leader of his great country," said Japanese PM Shinzo Abe

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one of his most “dependable” friends said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe while meeting his Indian counterpart as the latter visits Japan on a two-day tour to attend the 13th India-Japan annual summit. He added that together with the Indian leader, he would like to strengthen bilateral cooperation to realise a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Shinzo in his message to the country said India is driving the region and the world’s prosperity as a global power. “Prime Minister Modi is an outstanding leader of his great country,” he said.

Emphasising the need to cooperate and expand broadly in many fields such as security, investment, information technology, agriculture, health, environment and tourism, he added, “I have always believed and stated that the relationship between Japan and India is blessed with the largest potential in the world.”

“We share a big win-win potential in all areas and Japan remains committed to supporting India’s economic growth and Prime Minister Modi’s Make in India initiative through high-speed rail, subways and other infrastructure, mobilising Japan’s world-leading technologies. The day when Japanese Shinkansen bullet trains start running between Mumbai and Ahmedabad through cooperation will mark a shining symbol of Japan-India friendship in the future, he said.

It is worthy to note here how the Congress IT cell had persistently tried to lie about the bullet train MoU signed by our Prime Minister and the lie was further patronized by the Congress mouthpiece National Herald, reporting that Japan has stopped providing funds for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project. This lie, however, died its natural death after India and later the Japanese ambassador rubbished the claim.

Before leaving for the trip, Modi described India and Japan as a “winning combination”. Japan is India’s most trusted partner in its economic and technological modernisation, he said. Modi will also address the Indian community in Tokyo and will address a business forum.

This is the 12th instance when PM Modi is meeting the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe.
