Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday held bilateral talks with his Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hangzhou City of China.

“Bilateral meetings continue…PM @narendramodi & PM @TurnbullMalcolm discuss India-Australia relations,” tweeted the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

“Advancing an important partnership. PM @narendramodi & Australian PM @TurnbullMalcolm meet in Hangzhou,” tweeted Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) official spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

The meeting assumes significance as it took place just days after a report by the Australian media which revealed that sensitive information related to India’s Scorpene submarines has been leaked, with French shipbuilder DCNS, which designed the submarine, facing a leak of documents spreading over 22,000 pages.

The meeting is a follow up on the progress made following Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Australia in November 2014. India and Australia have several commonalities, which serve as a foundation for closer co-operation and multifaceted interaction on lines similar to what New Delhi has developed with the other western countries.
