During his talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the two discussed multiple issues of mutual interest. 

Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, said at a regular press briefing last Thursday that Japan is a “very important partner.”

“We have annual summits with them and this is part of that. They are also partners in plurilateral and multilateral constructs so we look forward to a rich discussion. We look forward to the exchange of views,” Bagchi said.  

In 2014, ties between India and Japan were elevated to a Special Strategic and Global Partnership.  The two countries have conducted regular yearly summits since 2006. New Delhi and Tokyo are also a part of the Quadrilateral Strategic Dialogue (QUAD), with Australia and the US.
