Narendra Modi addressed the Australian Parliament in Melbourne today and said that he was honoured by Australian government. Modi said: "The fact that both Australian PM and I had reciprocal visits in the same year indicates our commitment to strengthen India-Australia ties." Modi, the first Indian Prime Minister to address the Australian parliament remarked, "It has taken a Prime Minister of India 28 years to come to Australia. It should never have been so. And, this will change. Australia will not be at the periphery of our vision, but at the center of our thought."
