The Trump administration has imposed huge trade tariffs which it says are in retaliation for other countries' unfair trade practices.
In a statement before he leaves for Japan on Saturday to attend the annual summit on October 28 and 29, Modi said India's partnership with Japan is of great substance and goal. By insisting on standards developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, of which Japan is a member but China is not, Japan can signal to developing countries that it is a fairer partner, the Japanese official said.
Abe made the remarks in a written interview with Chinese media ahead of his three-day official visit to China scheduled from Thursday, which will mark the first time since 2011 for a Japanese prime minister to visit China officially.
