"The two leaders' vision for the Indo-Pacific is based on a rules-based order that respects sovereignty and territorial integrity of nations, ensures freedom of navigation and overflight as well as unimpeded lawful commerce, and seeks peaceful resolution of disputes.without resorting to threat or use of force", said the India-Japan Vision Statement.

Japan may also supply the Indian navy with amphibious US-2 aircraft, although the two countries have yet to conclude a deal after five years of negotiations.

Modi chose Japan among the first nations to visit after taking power four years ago. The two leaders discussed regional issues including North Korea and agreed to cooperate in achieving the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, Japan's Foreign Ministry said.

Abe and Modi will hold a formal summit Monday in Tokyo, during which strengthening bilateral security and economic cooperation are expected to be high on the agenda.

During the first official visit to Beijing by a Japanese political leader in almost seven years, Abe and the Chinese leaders agreed on the principle of moving from "competition to cooperation" in a new era of relations between Asia's two biggest economies.

PM Modi said Japan investors have announced they would invest $2.5 billion in India.

On the economic front, while Islamabad has been a partner in China's Belt and Road Initiative, notably via the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), New Delhi - which fought a border war with Bejing in 1962 and still is still embroiled in related border disputes - has been wary about accepting Chinese capital.

Modi said, "India is going through a massive transformative phase today".

Modi arrived in Japan late Saturday - the same day Abe returned from a three-day summit in China - to be met by members of the Indian expatriate community. Modi is the first foreign leader to be invited to the villa.

The Japanese PM said on Twitter that the opportunity allowed him to talk frankly about India-Japan relations in a relaxed atmosphere. The Indian prime minister later took an express train to Tokyo and also visited Japan's largest facility for building industrial robots.
