WorldDefence minister Rajnath Singh holds strategic talks with Australian counterpart

On Thursday, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh engaged in discussions with Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, Richard Marles. The dialogue centered on enhancing defence cooperation and furthering the comprehensive strategic partnership between India and Australia.

In a post on X, Rajnath Singh stated, “Spoke with Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Mr. @RichardMarlesMP. We reviewed a range of issues pertaining to defence cooperation and discussed closer collaboration between India and Australia in the Indo-Pacific. We place great value on the India-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.”

The two leaders acknowledged significant progress in defence cooperation under the comprehensive strategic partnership and commended the momentum achieved since the last India-Australia 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue held in November 2023, as per a press release from the Ministry of Defence.

“Australia considers India a top-tier security partner in their National Defence Strategy document released in 2024,” the statement highlighted.

The Indian High Commission in Canberra noted the remarkable growth in ties between India and Australia in recent years.

In June, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar thanked his Australian counterpart, Penny Wong, for coordinating with India in delivering Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) to the landslide-affected Enga Province in Papua New Guinea.
