India, Aust plan major naval exercise | Herald Sun

AUSTRALIA and India will stage joint naval exercises as they enhance their growing defence relationship. The format hasn’t yet been decided, but Defence Minister Stephen Smith says it will be a significant exercise.

Mr Smith, who has hosted Indian Defence Minister Arackaparambil Kurien Antony in Perth and Canberra this week, said the two nations had agreed on a range of measures for enhanced practical co-operation.

Mr Smith said it was the first visit to Australia by an Indian defence minister.
