ASEAN Summit: PM Modi holds talks with Japan, Australia and Vietnam counterparts

India and the Philippines on Monday inked four pacts providing for cooperation in a number of areas, including the defence and security, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held wide-ranging talks with President Rodrigo Duterte, covering an entire gamut of bilateral relationship.

"Meeting lasted for about 45 minutes. I reiterate my commitment to work with you to address the political, security and economic issues of the region", Modi said. "Terrorism also came up, particularly in context of the region west of India, all the way till the middle-east", he added.

Apart from the 10 ASEAN Member states, East Asia Summit includes India, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Australia, New Zealand, United States and Russian Federation.

In his maiden visit to the Philippines as the prime minister, Modi attended a reception by the Indian community and visited the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and Mahavir Philippines Foundation. By evening, the East Asia summit - comprising 10 ASEAN member-countries and another eight, including India, the US, Japan and China - issued two leaders' declarations: on anti-money laundering and countering terror financing, and on countering ideological challenges of terrorism and terrorist narratives and propaganda.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday strongly pitched for putting in place a rules-based regional security architecture, reflecting growing convergence among major players like India, the USA and Japan to have a coherent approach to deal with China's aggressive posturing in the Indo-Pacific region.
