India's new prime minister, Narendra Modi, is meeting his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe, in Tokyo to discuss economic and security ties, on his first major foreign visit since winning May's election.

Mr Modi is on a five-day trip to Japan to strengthen economic ties with the third largest economy in the world.

High on the agenda are plans for greater nuclear co-operation. India is also reportedly hoping for a deal on defence collaboration between the two nations.
