PM of India tweets in Japanese for the first time

New Delhi: The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has tweeted in Japanese for the first time, to talk to the people of Japan directly in Japanese. A team of Japanese volunteers helped with the translation. Following is the English translation of the tweets: "On 30th August I will begin my visit to Japan. I am keenly looking forward to the visit, which will boost relations between our two nations. Japan visit will be my 1st bilateral visit outside the subcontinent. I was to visit in early July but could not due to Parliament session.  I see the Japan visit as an opportunity to take our ties with Japan to a new level and increase cooperation in various fields. I will visit Tokyo & Kyoto and will interact with all sections of Japanese society from students, political leaders to captains of industry.  Have very warm memories of visiting Japan as a CM. The hospitality & the immense scope for cooperation left a deep impression in my mind.  The scale of innovation & level of precision among the people of Japan is admirable. Both our nations can learn a lot from each other. Am particularly excited to meet PM Abe. I deeply respect his leadership & enjoy a warm relationship with him from previous meetings. Japan`s friendship with India is time tested. We are two vibrant democracies committed to advancing peace and prosperity in the world."
