Extending the invitation, Pranab Mukherjee yesterday said India valued its long standing friendship with Cyprus and lauded its economic recovery under the leadership of Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, particularly its return to a positive rate of growth - which was among the fastest in the European Union.

Modi said he had detailed discussions with the visiting Cyprus President covering the full range of bilateral relationship and also exchanged perspectives on important global and regional issues of mutual concern.

"In this context, Prime Minister Modi appreciated the support of Cyprus to India's membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group", the statement said.

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed Cyprus's support to India's bid for membership of the 48-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), President Pranab Mukherjee has said there is an urgent need to strengthen the global counter-terrorism mechanism so that the menace can be fought jointly by the worldwide community. India and Cyprus signed the revised India-Cyprus Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement in November 2016.

Later, Anastasiades met with Indian businessmen of the film industry in Mumbai.

Cyprus is the eighth largest country in terms of FDI inflow into India and the bilateral trade read $110 million.

Emphasising the need for creating a comprehensive legal framework to fight terror, Modi advocated early conclusion of the Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT), proposed by India at the UN.
