Prime Minister Manmohan Singh returned on Tuesday after a four-day visit to South Africa that resulted in deepening bilateral strategic ties and securing support for India's case for nuclear fuel supplies.

Besides participating in the centenary celebrations of Mahatama Gandhi's Satyagraha movement, the Prime Minister held intensive discussions with South African President Thabo Mbeki on issues relating to international terrorism, UN reforms, India's need for nuclear energy as well as ways and means of enhancing bilateral trade ties.

After talks with the Prime Minister on Monday, Mbeki announced that South Africa supported India's case for nuclear fuel supplies.

The two countries also agreed to work for joint research and development in the defence sector.
