PM Narendra Modi to Visit Japan: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Japan on 27 September. There he will attend the state funeral of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The Ministry of External Affairs gave this information on Thursday. Japan’s longest-serving prime minister, Shinzo Abe, was shot dead by an assailant on July 8 during an election campaign in the western region.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi told a weekly press briefing that Shinzo Abe has a state funeral program and it is in a very friendly country. He said that it is very good that the Prime Minister is going there after taking out time from his busy schedule.
Modi told Abe his dear friend
Arindam Bagchi said, ‘It may also be a matter of personal relations but it is not right for me to comment on it.’ Prime Minister Modi will separately meet Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida during his visit. There was a lot of closeness between Prime Minister Modi and Abe. Condoling Abe’s death, Modi addressed him as a “dear friend” and said the former Japanese prime minister had dedicated his life to making the world a better place.
Protest over state funeral
Let us tell you that on July 8, two factions have formed in Japan regarding the state funeral of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. One group is in support of the state funeral and the other is against it. The opposing side is a bit high. Recently, protesting against this state funeral, a person had set himself on fire outside the office of the current Prime Minister. He was badly burnt in this. A policeman was also injured while saving him.
