Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has offered his government’s support to the Swachh Bharat Mission.

In a written message, PM Abe said that Japan will cooperate with India, which promotes the Clean India initiative under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership.

He further underscored Japan’s commitment to realise healthy societies in Asia and congratulated India on the success of the Mahatma Gandhi International Sanitation Convention.

“Securing clean water and improving sanitary conditions is a common challenge in the world. We hope for the further progress of each country’s efforts to address the challenge through active discussions at this convention (MGISC)”, Prime Minister Abe said in his message.
