Inaugural Remarks by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in Bilateral Meeting with Prime Minister of Japan
We meet today in this sad time. Today I find myself more depressed after coming to Japan. Because I had a long talk with Abe San the last time I came, and I never thought that I would have to hear such news after leaving.
Abe San and you along with him as Foreign Minister also took India-Japan relations to new heights and expanded it in many areas and our friendship also played a big role in creating global impact, India-Japan friendship and for all this people of India today Abe. Miss San so much, miss Japan so much. India is always missing it somehow.
But I am sure that under your leadership India-Japan relations will grow closer and reach greater heights. And I firmly believe that we can play a role in solving the world’s problems.
