New Delhi: A day after Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen cancelled his India trip, media reports quoting Japan’s Jiji Press suggests Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is now considering cancelling his trip to India. The trip was scheduled to begin on Sunday.
Abe was scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 15. The venue of the meeting was Guwahati, the capital of Assam — a state that is at the heart of street protests in the aftermath of the passing of the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill.
The army had to be brought in to quell the violent turn the protest took.
Abe’s reconsideration of his visit comes in the wake of these protests. However, when IANS approached the Ministry of External Affairs, it did not respond to queries.
MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar had said on Thursday: “We don’t have any update to share.” This comes a day after Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abdul Momen cancelled his visit to India.
