Tokyo, Sep 2 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday said India and Japan's friendship will determine the course of the 21st century.

He said the youth of India have attracted the world community towards India with their remarkable performance in the IT sector.
"We move the mouse (of the computer) and the world moves, too," Modi said.
He said there should be no compromise on part of Indians with their self-esteem.
He appealed to the Indian community in Japan to influence more and more Japanese to visit India, thereby boosting the tourism prospects of India.
