Japan, India to work for peace & stability in Afghanistan

KABUL (Pajhwok): The prime ministers of Japan and India have agreed to collaborate closely to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan.

At a meeting in New Delhi on Saturday, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi held talks on a wide range of subjects, including Afghanistan.

The Indian Express reported the two leaders underlined the imperative of resolving the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country.

They also called for promoting human rights and ensuring the establishment of a truly representative and inclusive political system in Afghanistan.

The premiers referred to a UN Security Council Resolution, demanding that Afghan territory should not be used for sheltering, training, planning or financing terrorists.

Following his meeting with Modi, Kishida announced that Japan would hike its investment target in India to $42 billion over the next five years.

During his maiden visit to India, the countries signed six agreements in the areas of cyber-security, capacity building, information-sharing and bilateral cooperation.

Happy with Japan’s increasing investments in India, Modi affirmed his administration’s commitment to providing all possible support to Japanese companies.
