PM Modi to hold talks with Australian PM today

Modi described it as a classic example of the kind of cutting-edge science and technology cooperation that was happening between the two countries.
Keeping in focus the maritime disputes in the South China sea, the statement called for respecting the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
