India and Malaysia all set for a bilateral cooperation
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak have talked about bilateral cooperation between the two countries, under which the focus would be on a "well-rounded partnership". Both countries have seen a strategic partnership since 2010, and Malaysia is at the core of the Modi’s 'Act East Policy'.
Modi, who is on a three-day visit to the Southeast Asian country, began bilateral programmes with a ceremonial welcome on the last day of his visit.
It was a treat to watch the two PMs meeting warmly, as Modi stepped out of his car at the Perdana square in Putrajaya, which is the administrative capital located on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. Dressed in a Bandhgala, Modi looked over a guard of honour and was introduced by Razak to several ministers and officials from the host country.
What followed was a one-on-one meeting between the two PMs, as confirmed in a tweet by Vikas Swarup, the External Affairs Ministry spokesperson.
