PMs bring India, Japan closer

August 23, 2007

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had a packed day in New Delhi on Wednesday. In the morning he addressed the Indian Parliament, visited Rashtrapati Bhavan to call on President Pratibha Patil, hosted a luncheon for Indian and Japanese businessmen, and addressed the media after a meeting with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in New Delhi's Hyderabad House later in the evening.

His day promises to be no less taxing today. On a visit to Kolkata, he has a meeting lined up with the chief minister, a visit to Tagore's Santiniketan, and an emotional meeting with the son of the judge who acquitted his grandfather of war crimes after World War II.
