Australia's membership will provide great boost to ISA: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday Met Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop in National Capital. She said Australia saw India as an incredibly important power, and wanted to work closely in defence because both countries share the same interest in maritime security, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region. "We believe territorial disputes should be resolved peacefully".

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop will meet Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake on Wednesday 19 July 2017 evening for bilateral talks at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, that would be followed by Statements to the Media. "Australia has a positive engagement with China, but it has an assertive foreign policy, especially in the South China Sea".

She said that in years to come, the greatest hope of peace and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region lies in all nations "respecting and contributing to worldwide law to protect national sovereignty" of other nations and strengthen the norms that guide relations between countries.

Bishop welcomed the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax and said this will increase India's competitiveness, enable it to open up its market and benefit from trade opportunities. "India, like any other country, has a massive stake in the development of Australia", concluded Julie.

Ms Bishop indicated she is confident Australia and India will be able to negotiate a free trade agreement.

"The Australian government is committed to working with India as an economic partner".
