PM Modi speaks to Australian counterpart ahead of Quad meeting

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison on Wednesday as the two leaders reviewed the rapid progress in the India-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, including through the recent ‘two-plus-two’ dialogue.
They also exchanged views on regional developments and the forthcoming Quad meeting, Modi said.
“Was happy to speak with my friend @ScottMorrisonMP. We reviewed the rapid progress in the India-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, including through the recent 2+2 Dialogue. We also exchanged perspectives on regional developments and the forthcoming Quad meeting,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

External affairs minister S Jaishankar and defence minister Rajath Singh had held the ‘two-plus-two’ talks here with their Australian counterparts Marise Payne and Peter Dutton on Saturday.
Developments in Afghanistan, the Covid-19 pandemic and ways to expand cooperation for a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific are set to be the central focus of the first in-person summit of the Quad in Washington next week that will be attended by Prime Minister Modi and other leaders of the four-nation grouping.
