The Bhartiya Janata Party on Saturday responded to China's objection to Japan showing interest in investment in Northeast. For example, Mr. Abe said North Korea was a "joint" challenge for India and Japan, and the statement contained a phrase about holding countries "that have supported North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes" accountable, obviously aimed at Pyongyang's benefactors in Beijing. "We are now trying to seek a solution through negotiation that is acceptable to both sides", Hua said. With the opulent pageantry and 8-km roadshow in Gujarat over, it is time to get down to brass tacks and address some of the issues in order to facilitate closer ties between India and Japan, even as the two leaders and militaries forge closer bonds. In this context, they noted with satisfaction the setting up of the India-Japan Act East Forum.

In line with Modi's "Act-East" Policy, Abe announced increased Japanese investment in infrastructure projects such as road connectivity and electricity in the region.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe held wide-ranging talks on key bilateral, regional and global issues and discussed ways to deepen ties in trade, security and civil nuclear energy. "India and Japan are important countries in Asia".

Asked about possible allusions to China in the joint statement, Hua said, "I have also read the Japan-India joint statement... Under such circumstances, we believe that any third party should respect the efforts made by China and India to settle the disputes through negotiations and any third party should not meddle in the disputes between China and India over territorial sovereignty in any form".

"India's policy has been very well clarified by Sushmaji (External Affairs Minister)".

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", the Chinese spokesperson added.
