Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday left for home after attending India-ASEAN, the East Asia and the RCEP summits here.

“PM @narendramodi emplanes for home after participating in ASEAN  & related summits, encapsulating principles of Neighbourhood First,  Act East & Indo Pacific across discussions with leaders from the  region,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

In his address at the annual India-ASEAN summit, Prime Minister  Modi talked about the mutual coordination between India's vision  of the Indo-Pacific and ASEAN Outlook for the strategically key region  which has been witnessing growing Chinese assertiveness.

Modi also talked about cross border terrorism, spread of violent  extremism and the situation in the South China Sea, and underlined  the need for greater cooperation between India and the ASEAN (Association  of Southeast Asian Nations) to unitedly confront major challenges facing the region.

During his speech at the RCEP Summit on Monday, Modi announced that  India will not join the mega Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership  (RCEP) deal as negotiations failed to address New Delhi's “outstanding  issues and concerns”.

He held several bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the summits.
