U.S. to host PM Modi later this month: State Department

U.S. to host PM Modi later this month: State Department

The Modi's visit comes at a time when Trump's critical comments on India while announcing the United States decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement have injected a degree of uncertainty in bilateral ties.

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi during their first meeting would set forth a vision to expand the US-India ties in an ambitious manner and discuss ways to advance common goals like fighting terrorism and expanding security cooperation in the Indo- Pacific region.

During his meeting with Goyal yesterday, the Uttar Pradesh chief minister discussed the issues related to power production and transmission in the state.

India's decision to focus on its commitment to the Paris Agreement on climate change and its proactive efforts to work with African countries is the right way to go. The two leaders have spoken over phone at least thrice since the latter assumed office. It is likely that he would meet the United States President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the mega event.

Apart from ways to enhance trade and business cooperation, the two leaders are also expected to discuss defence ties.




The White House's spin on job creation by India in the U.S. is in contrast to Trump's comments about jobs fleeing to China and elsewhere.

"India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions of dollars from developed countries", he had said.

Commenting on the US H-1B visa issue that has New Delhi anxious over the fallout for Indian professionals, India had recently said it is "not an immigration issue", but "a trade and services issue". #President Trump called India "a true friend and partner in addressing challenges around the world".

Trump's statement was swiftly rebuked by Indian Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj: "India didn't sign the Paris climate deal under pressure or greed for money". However, PM Modi will also be in limelight for taking an opposite stand to the US Prez. The Prime Minister will hold official talks with President Trump on June 26.

Major US firms such as Walmart and Apple have grown frustrated by regulations and tariffs imposed by Indian authorities as they seek to crack what is a potentially massive market.
