Trump plans early November meeting with Abe in Japan

Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed him at the airport.

Japanese PM accorded ceremonial reception upon his arrival at Ahmedabad airport.

A visit to the famous 16th century Sidi Saiyyid Ni Jaali mosque will also be part of the engagements on Wednesday before the two leaders sit down for talks on bilateral and other issues on Thursday.

Prime Minister Modi had visited Japan in November a year ago while Abe visited India in December 2015.

Abe also wants to discuss with Modi possible Japanese exports of nuclear power equipment and technology to India now that a civilian nuclear cooperation pact between the nations has taken effect in July, they said. This will be the fourth annual summit between Modi and Abe, who will review the progress in Indo-Japanese cooperation under the Special Strategic and Global Partnership.

The bullet train, which has a capacity to accommodate 750 people, is expected to reduce travel time between the two cities from seven to three hours.

The two leaders are also expected to jointly lay the foundation stone of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed railway as part of the agreement for the export of the "shinkansen" (bullet train) technology to India during the visit. The ashram was established by Mahatma Gandhi on the banks of the River Sabarmati.

Modi and Abe will also attend a business plenary before visiting the Dandi Kutir in Gandhinagar, which is India's largest museum showcasing the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. On being asked about the sale of amphibious aircraft ShinMaywa US-2 to India, Verma said, "I wouldn't really venture into prejudging on what is going to be the outcome". Abe had invited Trump to visit Japan during his February visit to the U.S.

Shinzo Abe then embarked on the eight-kilometre roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the airport to the Sabarmati ashram. It was in 2006 that India and Japan agreed to hold annual summits between the prime ministers of the two countries.

The Centre is confident of starting the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train on August 15, 2022 to commemorate the 75th year of India's Independence, a year ahead of its schedule, a senior official of the railway ministry said. Expected to cost almost ₹1.10 lakh crore, the first Bullet Train is expected to be ply on Indian soil by 2022.

PM Shinzo Abe and wife Akie Abe signed the visitor's book in the Aashram before leaving for Sidi Saiyed mosque. The Bullet Train was one of the important promises made by Prime Minister during the 2014 election campaign.
