Modi's visit to Japan

Modi’s visit to Japan


Modi’s visit to Japan is surely going to bring some ‘Ache din ‘not only for us but for Japan as well.

India is all set to ink an agreement for supply of rare earth metals to Japan and another MoU for defence exchanges.

Japan which depends on China for most of its supply of rare earth metals, has been looking to diversify its supply sources. It sought co-operation from India over rare earths in 2012 after a disagreement with China over Senkaku/Diaoyu islands which saw Beijing temporarily halting rare earth exports to Japan.

Japan in turn on Sunday agreed to work with India in developing a treatment for the sickle cell anaemia after Prime Minister Narendra Modi sought help for finding remedy to the deadly disease commonly found among tribals in India.

Modi, who has been keenly looking for a remedy to the disease since his days as Chief Minister of Gujarat, discussed the issue with Nobel Prize winner for Medicine (2012) S Yamanaka when he visited the Kyoto University.
