The Bhartiya Janata Party on Saturday responded to China's objection to Japan showing interest in investment in Northeast.

Expressing dissatisfaction over proposed Japanese investments in India's North-East states, as mentioned in the India-Japan joint statement following bilateral talks a day earlier between Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Shinzo Abe in Gandhinagar, Beijing Friday warned that a "third-party should not meddle" in border disputes between India and China.

It is clear that the Modi government has set India-Japan ties on an accelerated geopolitical course that will be a major factor in its dealings with the rest of the world, especially China, at a time when the U.S.is perceived to be retreating from the region.

Hua had even said that India and China are now trying to seek a solution through negotiations. So, I am wondering whether this is the overinterpretation of the media or just like the media's conjecture, both Japan and India have the hidden agenda.

Park had been six over through just five holes in the rain and wind before play was abandoned and all scores wiped. The US Women's Open champion regrouped and had seven birdies and an eagle to lead the tournament by two shots.

"To that end, we agreed on a India Japan Act East Forum which will essentially explore the possibilities of involving Japan in northeastern infrastructure", Jaishankar said.

India and Japan on Thursday inked 15 agreements to further broad-base their strategic partnership and agreed to strengthen cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region where China is increasing its assertiveness. I want to add that both Japan and India are important countries in Asia. "Under such circumstances, various parties should respect such aspects and any third party should not be involved in our efforts to resolve the disputes", she said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe held wide-ranging talks on key bilateral, regional and worldwide issues and discussed ways to deepen ties in trade, security and civil nuclear energy.

Reports say that the UNCLOS was mentioned atleast four time in the 2016 joint statement between the two countries. "We hope the normal development of the relationship can be conducive to regional, peace and development and play a constructive role in this process", she said.
