India and Australia signed six memorandums of understanding (MoUs), including on cooperation in fighting international terrorism and on civil aviation security, following delegation-level bilateral talks headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull in New Delhi Monday.
 
 The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) signed an MoU with Geoscience Australia on implementation arrangement on cooperation in earth observation and satellite navigation. Others MoUs were signed in the field of health and medicien, environment and wildlife and sports. 
 
 Following the exchange of agreements, Modi and Turnbull via video-conferencing jointly inaugurated the TERI-Deakin Nanobiotechology Centre (TDNBC) at TERI's Green Campus in Gurugram, Haryana.
 
 The Australian Prime Minister arrived here on Sunday on a four-day state visit to India. This is Turnbull's first bilateral visit to India since he assumed office in September 2015. His predecessor Tony Abbott had visited India in September 2014 and this was followed by Prime Minister Modi's visit to Australia in November that year.
 
   The two countries have intensified ties and developed a strategic relationship, including cooperation in defence, trade and education, over the years after Australia identified as a priority country in their international relations. 
 
"India is one of Australia’s most important international priorities. Our relationship has expanded dramatically since we established a Strategic Partnership in 2009, followed by two-way prime ministerial visits in 2014. We are taking forward an active and ambitious agenda,” Australian High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu, said.
