India, Australia ink six pacts

Agencies, New Delhi

India and Australia today inked six pacts, including one to boost cooperation in counter-terrorism and transnational organised crime. The agreements were signed after comprehensive talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his visiting Australian counterpart Malcom Turnbull.

In his statement, Mr Modi said that he along with his Australian counterpart has reviewed the entire gamut of India-Australia relations and taken a number of forward-looking decisions to further strengthen the partnership between the two nations. Mr Modi said that Mr Turnbull and he recognised that their future was deeply tied to peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific. Both the sides agreed on the need for a secure and rule based Indo-Pacific.

“We are also aware that in this globalised world, challenges like terrorism and cyber security, extend beyond the boundaries of our region. And, therefore, require global strategy and solutions,’ Mr Modi said. He noted that the Australian Prime Minister’s understanding and insight into regional and global issues brought a new dimension to “our cooperation on matters that concern us both.”

“Our cooperation in the area of defence and security has reached new heights. Our maritime exercises and exchanges have been productive. Our bilateral mechanisms on counter-terrorism and trans-national crimes are functioning well,’ he said.
