PM Modi Will Visit Japan For Summit Between 2 Nations

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Japan for two days from October 28 for the annual summit between the two nations and will discuss a host of bilateral and international subjects with his counterpart Shinzo Abe. The issues include defence and regional security. This will be the 13th annual summit and the fifth one to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale told reporters at New Delhi. “Regional security will be another topic. We presume that given the interest Japan has in issues related to the Korean peninsula and DPRK, this matter will be discussed. We will certainly raise our concerns over terrorism and other trans-border crimes which are of importance to us,” he said. India is also hoping to have some kind of synergy or integration between Modi’s Ayushman Bharat scheme,the largest medicare programme of its kind globally and the Japanese programme which is called Asia Health and Wellbeing Initiative.”How we dovetail this and how we leverage Japan’s strength in certain areas including medical equipments, hospitals and others is something that the two leaders can explore,” Gokhale said.
