Australian PM is Modi fan, takes selfie in metro

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi sure takes his selfies seriously. Already with an enviable collection of selfies with world leader, Modi has one more important name to the list.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who arrived in India on Sunday shared a lighter moment with Modi, the two of them clicking a selfie on the Delhi metro on Monday.

The duo rode the train from Mandi House station to Akshardham station.

"On board the Delhi Metro with PM @TurnbullMalcolm. We are heading to the Akshardham Temple," Modi tweeted with the selfie.

Turnbull also tweeted "With @narendramodi on the Delhi Metro Blue Line - 212 kms & 159 stations since 2002."

Earlier, India and Australia on Monday inked six pacts including one aimed at boosting counter-terrorism cooperation after talks between Modi and Turnbull in New Delhi.

The two sides inked a pact to boost counter-terrorism cooperation which was signed between the Ministry of Home Affairs and its counterpart Australian ministry.

While Modi noted that Australia was ready to supply uranium to India, Turnbull said his government was looking forward to exporting uranium to India "as soon as possible".

Turnbull arrived yesterday on a four-day visit, his first to the country after assuming office in 2015.
