New Delhi, Mar 16 (UNI) The Australian government today honoured former attorney general Soli Sorabjee for his contribution to the closer links between Australia and India in the legal field.

Mr Sorabjee, who was the attorney general in the Atal Biharim Vajpayee government, has been appointed an Honorary Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia, the Australian Embassy said.

The civilian award is given to Australians and sometimes to foreign nationals for outstanding contribution to improving ties with the country.

''Mr Sorabjee's professional links with Australia's judiciary, law academics and other eminent legal figures continue to open opportunities for expanding the links between India and Australia,'' said Australian High Commissioner John McCarthy.
