The Indian prime minister has been given a warm welcome by his Australian counterpart as Narendra Modi continues his second official visit to the country.

Thousands of Indian migrants and citizens of Indian origin filled the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney to hear Modi praise the cooperation between the two countries and witness a display of Indian culture.
