We will further strengthen our relations in a wide range of fields," he wrote in two tweets.

The Gujarat chief minister also mentioned Japan in his tweets speaking of his experience of working with the east Asian economic powerhouse.

"Personally, I have a wonderful experience of working with Japan as CM. I am sure we will take India-Japan ties to newer heights."

After thanking Nepal President Ram Baran Yadav and Prime Minister Sushil Koirala for their wishes, he referred to the neighbouring country as an "old & deeply valued friend".

Modi has had an uneasy relationship with the US which denied him a visa over 2002 Gujarat riots.

He has, however, in his public utterances stressed that foreign relations cannot be "influenced" by incidents related to individuals.
