In a statement from Japan`s Foreign Ministry, he said the agreement would promote closer cooperation between the two countries` military and allow them to actively contribute to international peace and security. In a 30-minute phone call on Thursday, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi welcomed the signing of the agreement and said it would promote closer cooperation between the armed forces on the ground. The military agreement “will also improve interoperability between the armed forces of India and Japan, thereby strengthening bilateral defence operations under the Strategic Partnership between the two countries,” according to a separate statement from the Indian Ministry of Defense. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is seen by some as an “indophile” and has spoken out in favour of closer security cooperation with India, given the growing tensions in territorial disputes with Japan`s neighbors.

In the 16th century, Japan established political contacts with Portuguese colonies in India. The Japanese first assumed that the Portuguese came from India and that Christianity was a new “Indian faith”. These erroneous assumptions can be explained by the fact that the Indian city of Goa was a central base for the Portuguese East India Company and was also due to the fact that a significant portion of the crew of the Portuguese ships was Indian Christian. [13] In the 16th and 17th centuries, Indian sailors from Lascar frequently travelled to Japan as crew members aboard Portuguese ships and then on British ships in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Japan has helped finance many infrastructure projects in India, particularly the Delhi Metro system. Indian applicants were admitted to the JET program in 2006, a slot was available in 2006 and 41 places were made available in 2007. In 2007, the Japanese Self-Defense Forces and the Indian Navy participated in a joint Malabar 2007 naval exercise in the Indian Ocean, also involving naval forces from Australia, Singapore and the United States.
