The PM returned home today after a nine-day-three-nation tour of Myanmar, Australia and Fiji during which he had a range of international engagements.
During his three-nation tour, Modi attended the East Asia and ASEAN-India Summits in Myanmar, the G-20 Summit in Australia and held bilaterals with his Australian and Fijian counterparts.
Modi, the first Indian premier to visit the Pacific country after Indira Gandhi who had come here in 1981, held talks with his Fijian PM Frank Bainimarama and also announced a slew of Lines of Credit and development aid totalling USD 80 million for the country, as per PTI.
Modi announced visa on arrival facility for all the 14 Pacific Island countries and hoped it will promote better understanding between the peoples.
During his four-city tour in Australia, Modi and his counterpart Tony Abbott agreed on a landmark framework for security cooperation across the spectrum in defence, cyber and maritime security and combating terrorism, including the threats posed by foreign fighters joining extremists groups.
The two countries also decided to conclude a long- pending Free Trade pact by the end of next year and an "early closure" of the civilian nuclear deal that will facilitate uranium imports to India.
Prior to arriving in Australia, Modi attended the ASEAN-India summit and the East Asia Summit in Myanmar.
At the East Asia summit in Myanmar capital Nay Pyi Taw, Modi asserted that the world community must reject any linkage between religion and terrorism while formulating a "genuinely international" partnership in the fight against all forms of terror acts.
