New Delhi: Holding a joint press conference with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi after summit level talks at Hyderabad House here on Saturday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said with a view to supporting growth of India, both public and private sectors of Japan would act in unison.

Stating that India and Japan have taken their relationship to a new level and “buds have turned into blossoms”, Prime Minister Abe stressed: “People-to-people relations are important, for which we are extending multiple entry visas.”
