The maiden meeting between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi would set forth a vision to expand the US-India partnership in an ambitious way, the White House has said.
The leaders of the world’s two largest countries will meet on June 26 to discuss a gamut of bilateral issues including terrorism and India’s concerns over possible changes in H1B visa rules.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his daily news conference that the two leaders are expected to set forth a common vision on expanding the US-India partnership.
He cited fighting terrorism, promoting economic growth and reforms and expanding security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region as shared priorities.
Spicer said President Trump and Prime Minister Modi will look to outline a common vision for the United States-India partnership that is worthy of their 1.6 billion citizens.
Trump invited Modi to Washington after the Indian leader rang him in January to congratulate the new president on his inauguration.
