“Today, Prime Minister (Chan-ocha) and I reviewed the full range of our bilateral engagement. From culture to commerce; from closer contacts between our peoples to deeper connectivity; and from counter-terrorism to defence and security. We are both aware that rapid spread of terrorism and radical ideology poses a common challenge to both our societies. And, we also recognise that our close security partnership would help us to secure our peoples from these threats,” said Modi.

Chan-ocha is on a three-day visit to India. He met with Modi in New Delhi on Friday and plans to visit the Buddhist pilgrim center of Bodh Gaya on Saturday before returning home.

Modi told reporters that information technology, pharmaceuticals, auto-components and machinery are some other areas of promising economic collaboration between the two counties whose bilateral trade in the last 15 years has grown eight times to about $7.93 billion.
