On September 13, 2017, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe held a press occasion at Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport).

In regard to his visit to India, the Prime Minister said,

“I hope to have a frank exchange of views on the issue of North Korea with Prime Minister Modi. We will confirm the close collaboration between Japan and India. The two of us will advocate to the world that the international community as a whole must fully implement the latest Security Council resolution, and urge North Korea to change its policy.

Japan will cooperate with infrastructure development in India through efforts at both the public and private sector levels. By combining the technology of Japan with the human resources of India, we will advance win-win cooperation to contribute to India’s development.

While issues remain for the implementation of nuclear energy cooperation, in the area of high-speed railway a Shinkansen project will begin at last. The Shinkansen project signaled the start of the rapid economic growth in Japan. I hope we will achieve a major step forward to ensure that this project can act as a catalyst for realizing further growth in India.”
