New Delhi [India], Nov. 9 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will tomorrow embark on his three-day long state visit to Japan to attend the Annual Summit, has said that he is looking forward to reviewing the entire spectrum bilateral cooperation with Tokyo.

"I am looking forward to reviewing the entire spectrum of our bilateral cooperation when I meet Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on 11 November," read a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office.

"I will visit Japan on 10-12 November 2016 for the Annual Summit. This will be my second visit to Japan as Prime Minister," the statement said adding, "Our partnership with Japan is characterized as a special strategic and global partnership. India and Japan see each other through a prism of shared Buddhist heritage, democratic values, and commitment to an open, inclusive and rules-based global order."

Disclosing detail about the visit, the statement said that Prime Minister Modi will have detailed interaction with top business leaders from India and Japan in Tokyo to look for ways to further strengthen trade and investment ties.

During the visit, he will also call on Japanese Emperor Akihito.

On November 12, Prime Minister Modi along with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe will travel to Kobe on the famed Shinkansen - the technology that will be deployed for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Railway.

Both leaders will also pay a visit to the Kawasaki Heavy Industries facility in Kobe, where high speed railway is manufactured.

"The High Speed Railway cooperation between India and Japan is a shining example of the strength of our cooperation. It will not only boost our trade and investment ties, but will also create skilled jobs in India, improve our infrastructure and give a boost to our 'Make in India' mission," said the statement.

One of the most important highlights of Prime Minister Modi's last visit to Japan in 2014 was that Tokyo lifted the ban on six Indian entities including Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) which was imposed in the aftermath of 1998 nuclear tests.

The two sides also signed pacts covering defence exchanges, cooperation in clean energy, roads and highways, healthcare and women while vowing to take their relationship from strategic partnership to a special strategic partnership.

With his upcoming trip, India is hoping for a closer nuclear pact with Tokyo. (ANI)
