NEW DELHI -- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held online talks with Australian counterpart Scott Morrison, with New Delhi reporting that Morrison expressed "understanding" of its stance on the war in Ukraine.

The talks between the pair, whose nations both belong to the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad), came two days after Modi hosted another Quad leader, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
