Text of PM's statement to media outside Parliament House

The Winter Session of the Parliament is starting today. In this cool environment, we will do good work in the interest of the nation with a cool temperament, such is my hope.

The people of this country have given us the mandate to run the government. But every one who has been given a place in the Parliament has been given the responsibility to run the nation. And that is why, it is my firm belief that the people sitting in the government and all the people sitting in the Parliament will work together for taking this country forward, and we will have a very fruitful session. In the last session, a lot of good work was done because of the active participation of the opposition. I believe that this time, too, we will have a similar experience.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi held a bilateral meeting with H.E Mr. Fumio Kishida, Prime Minister of Japan today on the sidelines of the G-7 Summit in Apulia, Italy.

Prime Minister thanked Prime Minister Kishida for the congratulatory wishes extended on assuming office for the third consecutive term. He affirmed that bilateral ties with Japan will continue to receive priority in his third term. The two leaders noted that the India-Japan Special Strategic and Global Partnership is in its 10th year and expressed satisfaction at the progress made in the relationship. They discussed ways to deepen cooperation further, adding new and emerging areas, and strengthening B2B and P2P cooperation.

India and Japan are collaborating on several important areas including the landmark Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail project that will usher in the next stage in mobility in India, the targeted 5 trillion yen worth of Japanese investment in India in 2022-2027 period, and India-Japan Industrial Competitiveness Partnership aimed at transformation of our manufacturing cooperation. The meeting between the two Prime Minister provided an opportunity to review some of these ongoing works of cooperation.

The two leaders looked forward to continuing their discussion at the next India-Japan annual summit.
