Burgeoning India-Japan Relations with US Backing Countering Chinese Influence

India-Japan Relations are flourishing and with the active support of the United States, the quad, along with Australia, seems to be slowly countering the Chinese influence in the Indo Pacific Region. Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of his most “dependable” friends and stated that India-Japan bilateral ties need to be strengthened.

Prime Minister Modi was an outstanding leader of his great country, the Japanese premier said. “I have always believed and stated that the relationship between Japan and India is blessed with the largest potential in the world,” he said.

Japan-India cooperation continued to expand broadly in many fields such as security, investment, information technology, agriculture, health, environment and tourism, Abe noted.

“We share a big win-win potential in all areas and Japan remains committed to supporting India’s economic growth and PM Modi’s Make in India initiative through high-speed rail, subways and other infrastructure, mobilising Japan’s world-leading technologies,” he said.

The day when Japanese Shinkansen bullet trains start running between Mumbai and Ahmedabad through cooperation will mark a shining symbol of Japan-India friendship in the future, Abe added.

“Prime Minister Modi, who is currently visiting Japan since yesterday, is one of my most dependable and valuable friends. On behalf of the entire Japanese government, I have the pleasure of extending him the warmest hospitality,” the Japanese leader’s message read.

“Together with Prime Minister Modi, I would like to further strengthen Japan-India cooperation to realise a free and open Indo-Pacific,” Abe said.
