Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Thursday strong ties with Japan will enable the two nations to play a key stabilizing role in the continent.


The PM is on a Japan visit to strengthen existing ties and also sign a landmark nuclear energy pact amid the growth of China’s regional influence and victory of Donald Trump in the US presidential election stamps doubt on the policies of White House in Asia.

Trump’s “America First” campaign has raised doubt on the security building ties by holding three-way naval exercises of India, Japan and US that could draw Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe closer.

Modi urged Japanese investors to invest in India as the 21st century is Asia’s century and together they have the capacity of driving regional economy and development.

He added a strong India and a strong Japan can also stabilize Asia apart from enriching the two countries. Together they can stimulate global growth too.

With the nuclear agreement India would get access to nuclear technology.

Earlier this week the Defence Acquisitions Council of India met to considering purchasing of twelve planes made by ShinMaywa Industries. However, a decision was not reached.

Recently Japan lifted 50-year ban on arms exports.

Meanwhile, it is important to know Japan is the only country in the world to have suffered nuclear attack.
