NEW DELHI, India— Indonesian President Suharto met for more than an hour Saturday with Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi to discuss bilateral relations and the upcoming superpower summit in Geneva.

Suharto stopped in India for two hours en route home from a meeting in Rome of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. He was met by Gandhi and his Italian born wife, Sonia, at an air force base on the outskirts of New DeThi.

The two leaders met alone for 90 minutes. Indian government spokesman Salman) Haidar later told reporters the two discussed the Nov. 1920 Geneva summit between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and agreed it should produce some movement toward ending the arms race.

Gandhi and Suharto also agreed to “expand bilateral cooperation through increased! contacts,” Haidar said.

He said the two exchanged views on Cambodia; which is occupied by Vietnam, relations between the six members of the Association of South East Asian Nations, or ASEAN, and the situation in southern Asia, including Indo Pakistan ties. Suharto later departed for Jakarta.
