Vladivostok:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday met Japanese PM Shinzo Abe in Russia during his two-day visit to the country. The two leaders pledged to deepen the robust bilateral ties in a number of areas, including in economic and defence sectors.

Modi, who arrived in Russia on a two-day visit, is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit to the Russian Far East Region. This duo has met twice this year, one at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan and other one along the sidelines of G7 summit in Biarritz, France.

“Continuous engagement for concrete bilateral ties. Prime Ministers Shinzo Abe and Narendra Modi meet in Vladivostok,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a tweet.

“A global partnership reinforced by robust bilateral ties. PM Narendra Modi met with PM Shinzo Abe on the margins of 5th EEF in Vladivostok. Discussed deepening multi-faceted ties in economic, defense and security, start-up and 5G areas and exchanged views on regional situation,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in a tweet.

 

Following his meeting with Abe, Modi will hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir bin Mohamad and President of Mongolia Khaltmaagiin Battulga.

Modi arrived in Russia on Wednesday to participate in the 20th India-Russia annual summit and the fifth meeting of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF). On his arrival, Modi received a guard of honour at Vladivostok International Airport.

The forum focuses on development of business and investment opportunities in the Russian Far East Region, and presents enormous potential for developing close and mutually beneficial cooperation between India and Russia in the region.

  • This day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province.
  • “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.
  • On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also paid his tributes to the revolutionary in his 69th ‘Mann ki Baat’ episode.

Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday paid tribute to Shaheed Bhagat Singh on his 113th birth anniversary. He expressed his gratitude to the revolutionary freedom fighter for giving a new direction to the Indian freedom struggle and making huge sacrifices to awaken the resolve of independence among the youth of the country. “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.

It was on this day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province. He was a charismatic Indian socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at the age of 23 made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement. Bhagat Singh was hanged in the Lahore jail along with Shivaram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23, 1931.

Meanwhile, as the nation pays tributes to Bhagat Singh, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will stage a sit-in protest against the Farm Acts on Monday at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of Bhagat Singh. Former Uttarakhand chief minister and Congress general secretary Harish Rawat will also be visiting Punjab for the first time since taking charge of state affairs.
