PM back home after concluding two-nation visit



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.
