TOKYO (Sputnik) – According to the Yomiuri newspaper, the bilateral deals that will be signed in the course of the high-level meeting later in the day, will include an agreement on the use of Japan’s Shinkansen high-speed trains, also known as bullet trains, expected to operate on the proposed 500-kilometer (310.68 miles) railway linking the cities of Mumbai and Ahmedabad in western India.
During the current Abe’s visit to India, the sides will sign an agreement on the invitation of 10,000 Indian students for an internship in Japan within five years, the daily said.
Another important topic of the negotiations between Abe and Modi will be the cooperation in the defense area, especially since Japan wants to take part in joint military exercises of India and the United States in the Indian Ocean.
The prime ministers will also try to achieve progress on a bilateral agreement on nuclear cooperation. The accord would pave the way for Japanese technologies to the Indian market, the newspaper concluded.
