Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Malcom Turnbull on Monday took the Delhi Metro from Mandi House station to Akshardham station.
“On board the Delhi Metro with PM @TurnbullMalcolm. We are heading to the Akshardham Temple,” Modi tweeted with a picture where Turnbull is seen taking a selfie with him.
Turnbull also tweeted “With @narendramodi on the Delhi Metro Blue Line - 212 kms & 159 stations since 2002.”
The Australian prime minister arrived in New Delhi on Sunday on a four-day India visit.
India and Australia agreed on Monday to revive stalled talks on a bilateral trade deal but Turnbull conceded that chances of an early breakthrough were slim.
Instead, Turnbull said he was prioritising an Asia-Pacific forum that includes China, amid concerns over access to India’s market of 1.3 billion people for farm exports from Australia and opportunities for skilled Indian workers there.
