    He also invited Japanese companies to participate in the biennial arms exhibition Defence Expo 2020, scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

    “Premier Mr @AbeShinzo’s regular interactions with India’s Prime Minister, Shri @narendramodi have put the special, strategic and global partnership between India and Japan on to an even higher pedestal. It has added a new strategic depth to our defence cooperation,” Singh’s another tweet read.

    Singh co-chaired the Japan-India Defence Ministerial Meeting and discussed various issues of mutual concern, including new initiatives towards achieving peace and security in the region.

    According to officials, the Indo-Pacific vision was discussed with an expression of India’s preference for a rule-based order along with centrality of Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) and inclusiveness and security for all.

    Officials said Singh also conveyed to Abe that J&K was an integral part of India and abrogation of Article 370 would benefit the local people. He also stressed that Pakistan had no locus standi in J&K.
