Seeking to further "strengthen and reinvigorate" the bilateral relationship between two countries, India and Italy on Monday signed six agreements and MoUs after a top-level delegation talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Italian counterpart Paolo Gentiloni.

According to an announcement from the Ministry of External Affairs, the pacts signed include - Joint Declaration of Cooperation for Safety in Railway sector, MoU on 70 years of Diplomatic Relations and also an MoU for promoting mutual investments.

Other pacts covered issues like cooperation in the field of energy and protocol on cultural cooperation.

Diplomatic ties between India and Italy had suffered minor hit following the February 2012 firing by two Italian marines, Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone, from MV Enrica Lexie, killing two Indian fishermen off Kerala. Mr Gentiloni''s visit to India comes after a decade.

Romano Prodi was the last Italian Prime Minister to visit India in February 2007.
