PMs' day out: Modi, Turnbull hold talks, take metro ride

A number of agreements were signed following Monday's bilateral summit.

On CECA, Turnbull did not give a timeline for the deal but said, "I think it's fair to say that progress has not been as fast as either of us would have liked".

"This smart Australia PM visits India and initiates one single pact to bring about the peace between Smith and Kohli, and now he will be known and remembered for as long as Kohli plays global cricket", a PMO official lauded the efforts by Mr. Malcolm Turnbull.

These agreements were signed during Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's four-day visit to India.

Australia's trade with India has doubled over the past decade to around $20 billion, Turnbull said, but added that it was a fraction of what it could and should be.

The key counter-terrorism pact was inked between the Indian Home Ministry and its counterpart in Australia as both the Prime Ministers witnessed the signing at the iconic Hyderabad House in Delhi.

His predecessor, Tony Abbott had visited India in September 2014 and this was followed by Modi's visit to Australia in November that year.

On the much-delayed supply of uranium from Australia to India, Joint Secretary (South) in the External Affairs Ministry Jaideep Mazumdar had said Australian parliament had cleared a legislation for the supply of uranium to India previous year and now "commercial negotiations" for it are going on, indicating that there was no firming up of any such pact so far. Skills never got the focus that it should have."Rudy said India need to train 400 million people in organised and unorganised sector".

On Tuesday, Mr Turnbull will take part in a strategic roundtable meeting involving Australia and Indian security and foreign policy experts.

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. Both sides agreed to extend bilateral engagement to the Asia- Pacific region. "India has a long history of protection, particularly for agriculture".

It added that the duo "welcomed continued and deepened trilateral cooperation and dialogue among Australia, India and Japan". The signed agreements include cooperation in combating worldwide terrorism and transnational organised crime.
