This is an elevated and new level of relationship with Japan, I am seeing this an opportunity to enhance cooperation in various fields on this visit to Japan.
On my visit to Tokyo and Kyoto, I will interact with students, political leaders, and business executives, all the layers of the Japanese society.
Through the test of time the friendship between India and Japan has flourished. We are a democracy committed to the promotion of peace and prosperity of this vibrant world.
