Amid the bilateral meeting with the Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that India-Japan relations will deepen further and scale to greater heights.

PM Modi on Monday left for Tokyo to participate in the state funeral of former Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe. "The Prime Minister conveyed his deepest condolences for the demise of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe," the statement read. 

Abe died at the age of 67 while delivering a stump speech near a train station in the western city of Nara when he was shot by an assailant.

Modi also said, "We are meeting today in this hour of grief. After arriving in Japan today, I am feeling more saddened. Because the last time I came, I had a very long conversation with Abe San. And never thought that after leaving, I would have to hear such news."

Along with Abe San, you in the role of Foreign Minister have taken the India-Japan relationship to new heights and also expanded it further in many areas, PM Modi said.

He said that the friendship of India and Japan also played a major role in creating a global impact. And for all this, today, the people of India remember Abe San very much, remember Japan very much. India is always missing him in a way, he said.
