Look forward to welcoming Ivanka Trump in India: PM Modi

Kelly Saunders | 29 June, 2017, 02:48

After Trump's and Modi's one-on-one meeting, hour-long delegation-level talks between the two countries took place in the cabinet room of the White House. And I hope that you will give me the opportunity to welcome you and host you in India.

Earlier, President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Modi pledged to increase economic cooperation to make their nations stronger and their citizens more prosperous. "You have done a great job". In The Netherlands yesterday, India signed a big pact on water, and getting Dutch assistance to clean up the Ganga.

The two leaders underlined the the close ties between their countries, with Trump saying India has a true friend in the White House. "So, once again, let me thank you and express my gratitude", Modi said. "Greatly look forward to my meeting and discussions with you @realDonaldTrump", he had tweeted.

During their joint statement, Trump repeatedly thanked Modi for visiting the U.S. and the White House, saying he enjoyed their "very productive conversation".

Earlier, in their joint press statement at the White House, Trump stressed on eliminating and destroying radical Islamic terrorism and emphasised on how both nations - the USA and India - are deeply affected by the malaise of terrorism. "We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism".

Trump and Modi also called on Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch terrorist attacks on other countries.

The United States also has offered to sell a naval variant of the Predator drone made by U.S. defense contractor General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, the White House said in a statement, a deal that would be worth more than $2 billion. As seen in the below video of the hug, Modi goes for the hug, seemingly surprising President Trump, who went for a handshake. He had been denied a US visa in 2005 over suspicions about his possible role in religious riots that killed more than 1,000 Muslims when he was Gujarat's top official.

The annual MALABAR naval exercise, occurring in July in the Indian Ocean, will be the most complex to date, including participants from the US Navy, Indian Navy, and the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force.

Trump said his administration is going to enforce "Hire American" rules that are created to protect jobs and wages of workers in the US. "We're working on it", he said as he praised the GST reform.

President Donald Trump met India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 26.

Security cooperation with India, Trump said, is "incredibly important". The barriers include high tariffs, inadequate protection of intellectual property rights, and inconsistent and non-transparent licensing and regulatory practices.

Apple chief Tim Cook, Google CEO Sunder Pichai, Cisco head John Chambers and Amazon's Jeff Bezos were among the entrepreneurs at the meeting.

With the Trump administration undertaking a review of the H-1B visa, the most sought-after by Indian IT professionals, the issue had taken centerstage ahead of Modi's United States visit with the issue expected to figure prominently in bilateral discussions.
