Aus PM Albanese Visit: PM Modi highlights security concerns of Indians in Australia
Reports of vandalism targeting temples in Australia hurts India, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Welcoming Australia PM Anthony Albanese to India, PM Modi said India and Australia have been close partners covering areas like security and education but the recent incidents against Hindu temples have ‘disturbed’ India.
While PM Albanese did not address the concerns mentioned by PM Modi but said, that Delhi-Canberra ties are ‘multifaceted’ and informed that the two sides agreed on completing a Comprehensive Economic Agreement ‘as soon as possible.’
‘Indian immigrants are the second largest expat community in Australia. They are making significant contribution to the Australian society and economy. It’s a matter of regret that for the last few weeks we have been getting regular news of attacks against temples. It’s natural that such news worries everyone in India, and hurts our sentiments,’ said PM Modi at the Hyderabad House.
