Osaka: Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a "productive" trilateral meeting with US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and extensively discussed issues of the Indo-Pacific region, connectivity, and infrastructure development ahead of the formal opening of the G20 Summit in Osaka.
The trilateral meeting between the leaders was the second Japan-America-India or JAI meeting, that focused on how the three countries could work together towards an open, stable and rule-based Indo-Pacific region.
"Committed to a better future. Meeting of JAI (Japan-America-India) Trilateral takes place in Osaka. PM @AbeShinzo welcomes the leaders. @POTUS congratulates Prime Ministers Modi and Abe for their electoral victories. PM Modi highlights the importance India attaches to JAI," the Prime Minister's office tweeted.

On Thursday, PM Modi held wide-ranging talks with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe on the global economy, issues of fugitive economic offenders and disaster management.
Prime Minister Modi will also meet Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Putin and other leaders during the June 28-29 summit. Later in the day, PM Modi will also be attending the Russia-India-China or RIC meeting on the sidelines of the G20 meet.
