PM Kishida arranging visit to India in March

Sunday’s Sankei gave top coverage to the finding from several GOJ sources on Saturday that Prime Minister Kishida is making arrangements to visit India in March for talks with Indian Prime Minister Modi. Noting that Japan is expected to host a Quad summit in the spring, the paper said the two leaders are expected to confirm stronger cooperation toward a free and open Indo-Pacific with the growing threat posed by China in mind. The daily wrote that the premier will make a final decision on the visit after assessing the COVID-19 situation. Monday’s Nikkei carried a similar story, saying that Kishida is also hoping to encourage India to align with Japan, the United States, and Europe vis-a-vis Russia over the Ukrainian crisis.
