New Delhi: India is all set to host  Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD) Foreign Minister’s meeting next year, media reports said.

Japanese envoy to India Hiroshi Suzuki said the country's foreign minister is expected to visit the nation for the event.

While talking with ANI, Japan’s envoy said that he is happy that India is going to host the Foreign Minister’s Meeting which is a very important framework that India and Japan are working together.

“India is going to be the Host for the Quad (Quadrilateral Security Dialogue) Foreign Ministers meeting and my Foreign Minister Hayashi is looking forward to visiting India on this occasion. Quad as you know has been getting firmly on the ground. We had the first summit last year in Washington DC and then this year in Tokyo and I am glad that next year India is going to host the Foreign Ministers Meeting. So, this is a very important framework and I am glad that India and Japan are working very closely together on this,” said the Japanese envoy to the news agency.

Talking about the Japan-India ties and about Japan’s new National Defence Strategy to promote training and exercises as well as defence equipment and technology cooperation with India, the Japanese Ambassador said that the two countries enjoy a special strategic partnership and we will try to expand our cooperation in all fields, security being an important area.

“India and Japan enjoy a special global strategic partnership and we try to expand our cooperation in all fields. Of course security is a very important area so I am glad that the cooperation is advancing in the area of security. India this month has taken over the Presidency of G20 and come January, Japan will take over the presidency of G7. So, the close cooperation between India and Japan under the Presidencies of G20 and G7 is more important than ever. So, I look forward to working closely with my Indian friends to promote close cooperation going forward,” he said.
