India, Malaysia will deepen defence cooperation: PM Narendra Modi ​

Malaysia: Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Monday praised Narendra Modi while addressing a joint press conference, and called him a man of action.

Addressing the media after both the leaders held talks on ways to ramp up bilateral cooperation with the focus on building a well-rounded partnership,” Razak said, “Mr.Modi is a man of action, he wants things to be implemented expeditiously.”

Razak said, “We also discussed defence cooperation. India has very dynamic and strong defence industry. PM Modi is also keen to expand traditional medicine, in the field of Ayurveda.”

The inauguration of Torana Gate shows India-Malaysia ties are not only economical but also cultural.

“Prime Minister Modi has big plans to develop India especially in the construction of infrastructure, railway development, highway development, smart cities, digital India, solar energy, renewable energy and so forth,” Razak said during his joint address with Prime Minister Modi.
