New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday met his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida and the two leaders reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership, the ministry of external affairs said in a statement.

Modi, who is in Tokyo to attend the state funeral of Japan’s former prime minister Shinzo Abe, conveyed his deepest condolences on the sudden demise of Abe, the MEA said.

The leaders renewed their commitment to strengthening the India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership, and in working together in the region and in various international groupings and institutions.

PM Modi noted the contributions of Abe in strengthening India-Japan partnership as well in conceptualising the vision of a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region.
