“The summit which happened today’s morning was slated to be a 40 minutes conversation but it spilled into 70 minutes. The conversation was extremely productive and the atmospheres of the meeting were very warm and friendly,” Singh told the media here.

“PM Morrison described Indo-Australian partnership as a natural and comfortable one between two confident and sovereign nations who are trusted partners. We expressed satisfaction at an elevation of relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership,” she said.
