Japan’s former prime minister, Shinzo Abe, was a ‘great friend and well-wisher of India’, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said on Friday as she condoled the 67-year-old politician’s assassination.

“I am shocked at the assassination of Mr Shinzo Abe, former Prime Minister of Japan. He did much to expand and deepen the bilateral relationship between our two countries. I recall my meeting with him very fondly and vividly,” a Congress press statement quoted Gandhi as saying. 

She further described the ex-Japanese premier’s demise as a ‘huge misfortune’ not only for Japan, but for the international community as a whole.
