Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be treated to a glimpse of India's military and nuclear might at the Republic Day parade on Jan 26. Abe, whose country is against nuclear weapons after suffering the horrific effects of the atomic bombing nearly 70 years ago, vowed to realize a nuclear-weapons free world at an event to mark the 68th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima last August. The India-Japan civil nuclear agreement is unlikely to be ready for inking during Abe's visit. Both sides are still in negotiations on the issue, Abe said, adding the subject is of "great sensitivity".
