PM Modi to hold talks with Australian PM today

India and Australia on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation in combating worldwide terrorism and transnational organised crime - an "overarching security understanding" expected to allow links between law enforcement, border and intelligence agencies of both nations to grow to combat security threats.

"The wheels of industry go on and we're working to identify tangible, commercial opportunities to strengthen two-way trade and investment and this will be a particular focus of my visit to Mumbai", he said.

Wrapping up his four-day visit, Turnbull said India is now enormously important in the region.

India and Australia inked six pacts including one aimed at boosting counter-terrorism cooperation after talks between Modi and Turnbull.

Welcoming the Australian Prime Minister to India, the President said India values its growing cooperation with Australia. According to reports, huge cheers awaited the PM Modi at Mandi House as loud chants of "Modi Modi" were heard as the Prime Minister boarded the metro with his esteemed counterpart from Australia.

He expects Turnbull's visit to the country ends up as productive as Smith's batting form during the recent Test series.

Australia will collaborate with India to build capacity of 4 lakh Indian professionals over the next few years, as the two nations look to deepen engagement in skill development. Australian PM also extended strong support for India's membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group.

On comprehensive trade agreement, the two prime ministers asked negotiators to find a way out and list their priorities soon so that talks on it can move forward.

The joint statement seeks a secure and rule-based Indo-Pacific region, ensuring maritime security and safety of sea lanes, lines of communications and resolving maritime disputes by peaceful means in accordance with worldwide law, a snub to China, declared to be in violation of the Law of the Seas.

One MoU was signed on cooperation in fighting global terrorism and organised crime.

"Our strong and vibrant strategic partnership is of course important for the security and well-being of our societies".
