India and Mauritius on Saturday signed an agreement for maritime security as New Delhi extended a $500-million credit line to the Indian Ocean island nation following delegation level talks headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Mauritian counterpart Pravind Jugnauth.

As frontline states of the Indian Ocean, Prime Minister Jugnauth and I agree that it is our responsibility to ensure collective maritime security around our coasts and in our EEZs (exclusive economic zones).
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister

Modi added that both countries must be vigilant against piracy that impacted trade and tourism, drug and human trafficking, illegal fishing and other forms of illegal exploitation of marine resources.
