New Delhi: Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga is likely to visit India soon. According to sources, he may come to India at the end of April or early May. He is the first Japanese leader to visit India after the Corona epidemic. The meeting between the then Japanese PM Shinzo Abe and PM Modi in Guwahati in December 2019 had to be canceled due to the ongoing demonstration against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
It was only last month that PM Narendra Modi spoke to Yoshihide Suga over the phone. The two had expressed concern over China's recently passed Coast Guard law in the East and South China Seas and unilateral efforts to change hong kong's position. The two had a conversation for about 40 minutes. In the talks, the two PMs agreed to continue to pursue both Japan-India bilateral cooperation and Japan-Australia-India-US quadrilateral cooperation.
The two exchanged views on Japan-India relations and decided to continue their efforts to complete the Japan-India Special Strategic and Global Partnership through cooperation in economic relations including security and defense, exchange of digital sectors.
