India, Japan seek help from Abenomics & Modinomics

During their marathon meeting, which lasted for nearly four hours, the two leaders agreed to further strengthen relations in accordance with the Special Strategic and Global Partnership and decided to pursue discussions on civil nuclear cooperation, official sources said. The civil nuclear negotiations are stuck due to reservations on the part of Japan.

The leaders also reviewed the progress on the US-2 Amphibian Aircraft, a joint production venture, during the meeting which was held for the first time with a restricted session which lasted for 45 minutes, the sources said. The ministers were later joined by a multi-Ministry delegation which included officials from commerce ministry.
