Indian foreign minister meets Japan PM Abe
Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj called on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on Friday (March 30).
Swaraj and Abe discussed the huge potential for growth of India-Japan relations.
Swaraj arrived in Japan on Wednesday (March 28) on a three-day visit aimed at reviewing the entire gamut of bilateral relations. She co-chaired the 9th India-Japan Strategic Dialogue with her Japanese counterpart Taro Kono on Thursday (March 29).
Ties between India and Japan have blossomed as Abe and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi increasingly see eye-to-eye in countering growing Chinese assertiveness across Asia. Japanese investment into India has surged in areas ranging from automotives to infrastructure in the remote northeast, making Tokyo its third-largest foreign direct investor.
