Prime Minister Narendra Modi met his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe and the two leaders pledged to deepen the robust bilateral ties in a number of areas, including in economic and defence sectors.
Modi, who arrived in Russia on a two-day visit, is the first Indian prime minister to visit to the Russian Far East Region.
The meeting between prime minister Modi and Abe comes after they met at the G-20 Summit in Osaka in Japan and on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in Biarritz in France.
“Continuous engagement for concrete bilateral ties. Prime Ministers Shinzo Abe and Narendra Modi meet in Vladivostok,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a tweet.
