New Delhi: India and Japan share the important heritage of Buddhism, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said on Tuesday.

Addressing a parliamentary delegation from Japan, Rijiju said that the intention of Japan Investment Promotion Partnership and Japan to invest $3.5 trillion in five years time in India has given a significant step to further the relationship between the two countries, according to an official release here.

He thanked the Japanese Overseas Development Agency for contributing in the economic and technological sectors in India and said that India and Japan are traditional and strategic friends.

The minister hoped that there will be lot of further cooperation from Japan in two important flagship programmes in India– ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’.

Rijiju said that without India and Japan as permanent members, the United Nations Security Council is not complete. With Japan being one of the oldest civilizations of the world and India the largest democracy in the world, both deserve to be the permanent members of the Security Council along with Germany and Brazil.
