Australia`s prime minister earlier said he was "inclined" to cancel a state visit to India scheduled for the end of the month. In a statement from Modi a few hours later, he said he looked forward to Morrison`s next set time.

A statement issued by India`s prime minister`s office said the two men made the remarks on Friday.

The statement states:" Prime Minister Modi, on behalf of all Indians and himself, extends heartfelt condolences to Australia for the loss of life and property caused by the long-standing forest fire. "

"India firmly supports the Australian people who have braved this unprecedented natural disaster. "

Mr Modi expressed satisfaction with the development of the bilateral relationship in recent years, reiterating India`s commitment to strengthening its strategic partnership with Australia. "

Earlier on Friday, Mr Morrison said his visit was aimed at strengthening Australia`s defence links with Japan and India.

Morrison told Journalist:" I`m inclined not to make this visit. Before dealing with such problems, I need to deal with some domestic problems. "

India has indicated that Morrison will also formally cancel his trip to Japan. His refusal to cut back on Hawaiian vacations in response to the crisis and his response to the wildfires has come under intense criticism.

The National Security Committee`s meeting in Canberra on Saturday morning is expected to worsen in the new state and Virginia fires this weekend.

New State Gov. Gladys Berejiklian declared a state of emergency in the new state, while Virginia Gov. Daniel Andrews declared a state of disaster in the state.
