Both sides signed six agreements to expand bilateral talks in many other areas like the clean energy partnership. The six agreements also include a Memorandum of Cooperation on cybersecurity, a Memorandum on Sustainable Urban Development and an agreement on decentralised wastewater management.

“There has been progress in the economic partnership between India and Japan. Japan is one of the largest investors in India.

Loans worth Rs 20,400 Crores from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) was also approved for cooperation infrastructure, connectivity, biodiversity and healthcare.

“India and Japan understand the necessity of a secure, trusted, predictable and stable energy supply.

Japan and India will keep trying to end the war and support Ukraine and its neighbouring countries.”
