"Relations between India and Australia trace their origins to our colonial period. Even during the Cold War years, Australia remained a visible presence in our popular psyche. A large Indian-origin community of nearly half a million has made Australia its home. Our shared belief in parliamentary democracy, secularism, multiculturalism and free enterprise provides the basis for our relationship. The linkages of the English language and the Commonwealth bind us together and pave the way for greater cooperation. We can, of course argue about which one of us is more passionate about cricket, but there is little doubt about what this sport has done to bring us closer together."
- H.E. Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, 17 October 2012, New Delhi
"I am committed to building a productive and enduring partnership with India; one which stands in the first rank of countries which matter to our nation, to Australia."
- The Hon Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia, 17 October 2012, New Delhi
