Japan PM Shinzo Abe's two-day visit begins today, here's his itinerary


Abe and Trump are scheduled to meet in mid-September during the prime minister's visit to NY, where they will hammer out details of the president's November visit. They signed the visitor's book in Japanese, "Love and gratitude, Shinzo Abe and Akie".

To welcome the Japanese PM, two years after Modi hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping in Ahmedabad, a rare 8-Km long road-show had been planned.

PM @AbeShinzo & I will attend the programme to mark the start of work of India's first high-speed rail project between Ahmedabad & Mumbai.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe will look at ways to enhance "multifaceted" relations between the two countries and carry forward their special strategic and global partnership when they meet for the annual Summit on Wednesday.

There is also a dinner arrangement at 'Agashiye' restaurant located near the mosque.

Prior to this, the Japanese PM Abe's PM Modi greeted him with a warm welcome on the Ahmedabad Airport. Abe, who was in a formal suit when he arrived at the Ahmedabad airport, wore kurta-pyjama and a blue Nehru jacket, while his wife donned red salwar-kameez and a white stole to Sabarmati Ashram. Both these events remain significant developments for India and Japan but given the geographic distance that separates them, there is very little that the two can do to come to each other's aid.

While his wife sported a attractive pink coloured salwar-kameez paired with a cream-hued dupatta, Shinzo donned white kurta pajama and a blue Indian-style Nehru jacket, similar to that of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which he wears during his foreign visits.

After a massive roadshow, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shizo Abe visited Mahatma Gandhi's Sabarmati Ashram on Wednesday.

In 2015, China won a contract to assess the feasibility of a high-speed link between Delhi and Mumbai, part of a network of more than 10,000 km (6,214 miles) of track India wants to set up, but little progress has been made.

Japan is arranging with India to upgrade security talks involving vice foreign and defense ministers to a ministerial-level dialogue in light of China's growing influence in the Asia-Pacific region and the Indian Ocean, government sources said Tuesday.
