(AP) Indonesia and India have signed agreements in various sectors and agreed to increase their cooperation in other areas.


President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and visiting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said after a meeting Friday at the presidential office that both sides highlighted the need to enhance bilateral cooperation in various sectors, including agriculture, transportation, defense and security.


Singh arrived late Thursday for a three-day official visit after attending summits in Brunei.
