Modi calls India, America, Japan partnership as ‘JAI’


Terming the India-US-Japan partnership as “JAI” ( victory in Hindi), Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the partnership between the three nations would help in ensuring world peace, prosperity, and stability.

‘’When you look at the acronym of our three countries — Japan, America, and India — it is “JAI,” which, in Hindi or in India, in general, is for “success.”  In a way, this “JAI” — “success,” this message — is a good message that goes out.  It’s a good beginning.

And together, as I said earlier, we’ll be playing a very big role to work together for world peace, prosperity, and stability,’’ Modi said ahead of the
first-ever trilateral meet with US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires. 

Modi said that it was a great occasion for the three countries — countries which have shared values, democratic values — Japan, America, and India together. 

‘’I’m also happy that both the countries are our strategic partners.  Both of them are very good friends.  And the three countries together — it is a matter of good fortune that we will work together,’’ he said.

Trump said that the relationships between the three countries is extremely good and strong.  “I think, with India, maybe stronger than ever.  And with Japan, I think, stronger than ever.  We’re doing very well together.  We’re doing a lot of trade together.  We’re doing a lot of defense together, a lot of military purchases,’’ he said.

Meanwhile Abe said ‘’I certainly hope to further reinforce our trilateral partnership and to continuing our close cooperation toward realizing a free and open Indo-Pacific.’’
‘’By having three of us working together, we’ll bring more prosperity and more stability in the region, as well as globally,’’ he said.
