World lost a great visionary, I lost a dear friend: Modi remembers Abe
Remembering Abe, Modi wrote in a blog that he first met Abe in 2007, during his visit to Japan as the Chief Minister of Gujarat and right from that first meeting their friendship went beyond the trappings of office and the shackles of official protocol. Modi further noted that he will always be indebted for his warmth and wisdom, grace and generosity, friendship and guidance, and I will miss him dearly.
