Agencies, Gandhinagar

India and Japan today decided to upgrade their defence and security cooperation, and deepen the involvement of Japan in developmental project in the sensitive North-east region besides agreeing to work together with third countries.

The two countries also signed 15 key agreements, including in key sectors like civil aviation, after bilateral talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his visiting Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe at their fourth annual Summit here.

In a joint statement issued after the talks, both the countries also called for “zero-tolerance approach” to terrorism and in obvious reference to Pakistan called for destruction of safe havens for terrorists and their financing channels.

They called upon Pakistan to bring to book the perpetrators of the Pathankot terror strike.

Without naming Pakistan and China, the joint statement said the two countries agreed on the need of world community holding accountable all those parties that helped North Korea in its nuclear programme.
