MUMBAI (PTI): Australian High Commissioner to India Barry O'Farrell and acting Consul General Sarah Roberts visited the western naval command in Mumbai after the recent joint Naval exercise, the Indian Navy said on Tuesday.

The high commissioner interacted with Vice Admiral Ajit Kumar at the western naval command on Monday and exchanged views on various issues of common interest such as bilateral cooperation in defence and security, strategic partnership and shared maritime interests as Indian Ocean littoral states, the Navy said in a release.

The visitors also included three other officials from the Australian side.

The high commissioner also visited the aircraft carrier dock at the western naval command, it said.

The high commissioner's visit was significant as it coincided with the recently-concluded Quad exercise ‘Malabar 2020’ in which India, Australia, Japan and the US participated.

'HMAS Ballarat', a frigate of Royal Australian Navy represented Australia in both the phases of ‘Malabar 2020’ exercise. It had spent some time at Goa port for its operational turnaround from November 10-13, it said.

The Australian high commissioner's visit is in accordance with the good relations enjoyed by both the Commonwealth nations and is expected to further strengthen the existing bonds between both the Navies, the release added.
