Prime Minister Narendra Modi left for home on Monday after holding two-day 13th India-Japan annual summit with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe during which they discussed issues of bilateral interest, the situation in the Indo-Pacific region and the two sides signed several agreements.
"PM @narendramodi departs for Delhi after a fruitful visit to Japan that re-emphasised India's commitment to further strengthen bilateral ties and open new vistas for cooperation," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.
Modi, who arrived in Japan on Saturday night, held extensive talks with Abe on Monday during which they reviewed developments in bilateral relations and explored new areas of cooperation, focusing on shared vision for peace and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific, where China is flexing its muscles.
The two leaders also agreed to initiate 2+2 dialogue involving their foreign and defence ministers.
Abe hosted Modi days after he went to Beijing where held talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping.
The formal summit between Modi and Abe came a day after the two prime ministers spent about eight hours together at a picturesque resort near Mount Fuji in Yamanashi prefecture discussing ties between the two countries and ways to deepen strategic dimension of the bilateral relationship.
