The two countries also decided to step up counter-terror cooperation and spur negotiations for a comprehensive economic cooperation agreement that will increase their trade and investment.

External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna held talks with his Canadian counterpart John Baird, setting the agenda for the visit of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to India in November.

The two ministers also discussed intensification of economic and energy ties and food and energy security.

"We have no concerns with proliferation. These issues are in the past. I am confident that these discussions will be concluded early," Baird said after meeting Krishna.
