New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
arrived here Sunday night after concluding his two-nation visit to
Indonesia and Singapore during which he attended two key Asian
summits and held talks with US President Barack Obama and
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.
Singh returned from Singapore where he was on a two-day
trip, holding talks with his counterpart Lee Hsien Loong and
unveiled the bust of first Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal
Nehru.

In Singapore, he invited greater investments from the
city-state which he describe as a "valued partner" for India`s
ambitious plans for infrastructure development.

Lee extended his country`s support to India`s bid for a
permanent membership of an expanded UN Security Council.

In the first leg of the four-day tour, Singh was in Bali
to attend the East Asian summit and the summit of Association
for South East Asian Nations (ASEAN).
On the sidelines of the summits, he held talks with
Obama, Wen and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, among
other leaders.
