After meeting the Japanese Premier, Shinzo Abe, and having a brief discussion about the progress of bilateral relationships and other important projects, PM Modi expressed his satisfaction about the same. They both came as navies of both the nations as they are engaged in a naval exercise in the Bay of Bengal and in this frontline, both their warships are employed. Japan is India’s largest bilateral donor and possibly the only country involved in connectivity projects in India’s northeast, where some states share a border with China. Japanese Overseas Development Agency (ODA) supports India’s efforts for accelerated economic development, particularly in the projects related to basic human needs.
China watched this trilateral with discontent.
PM Modi looked forward to Abe’s visit to India for upcoming Annual Summit in India and hoped that it would enhance their relations and cooperation.
After this, he met the Premiers of Italy, Paolo Gentiloni, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in and discussed ways to boost bilateral ties and cooperation at the global level. He also held a meeting with the Premiers of South Korea Mexico, Argentina, the UK, and Vietnam on the sidelines of G-20 Summit.
After attending the concluding session, PM Modi will leave for New Delhi in the evening.
