Earlier, in the day, visiting Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his country will work more closely with India in order to secure stronger ties.
“Our ties are strong and will be stronger because of this visit,” Turnbull told the media after his ceremonial welcome at the Rashtrapti Bhawan.
“Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi is leading this most remarkable nation on a extraordinary journey of growth and development,” he said.
“The achievements of India are the admiration of the world,” Turnbull said, adding: “We in Australia look forward to working even more closely than we have done in the past.”
He arrived here on Sunday evening on a four-day state visit to India. This is Turnbull’s first bilateral visit to India since he assumed office in September 2015.
