Japanese PM Abe to arrive on Wednesday

Japanese PM Abe to arrive on Wednesday”

This time, nearly three weeks after the "disengagement" of Indian and Chinese troops at Doklam, Abe is the first foreign leader to visit the country.

On Day 2, both the state leaders will visit Sabarmati railway station in Ahmedabad where they will lay the foundation stone of Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe share a comfortable relationship with each other. During Modi's last visit to Japan, Abe travelled with him to Kobe in a bullet train. A senior government official told Sunday Express "The Japanese PM will be accorded a very warm welcome". "A parallel CEO conference will also be held at the same venue, where representatives from both India and Japan will participate", the official said, adding that an entire hotel in western Ahmedabad has been booked to accommodate a Japanese delegation that will be arriving with Abe, the report added.

The two prime ministers will also launch a couple of projects, including the Rs 3,000-crore Suzuki vehicle manufacturing plant at Hansalpur, about 170 km from Ahmedabad, using a remote. Apart from discussing a host of bilateral and global issues, the two leaders will also participate in the ground-breaking ceremony (bhoomi pujan) for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Project, which is the Rs 98,000-crore Bullet train project.

Hiramatsu further said, "We are living in a world that is becoming increasingly vulnerable and unpredictable, with outstanding issues like North Korea". The two nations have also been holding a bilateral naval exercise, the JIMEX, since 2012.

"We have to deter North Korea's repeated provocative acts", he said, noting recent joint drills with the United States in the Sea of Japan and defense cooperation with like-minded countries including Australia.

Speaking at the India-Japan Colloquium session, Jaishankar stressed as to how cooperation and civil nuclear defence will be two key components of the future for both India and Japan.
