A joint statement released after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged Pakistan not to let its territory be used by terrorists for attacks on other countries. To cement this, the U.S. cleared the sale of predator Guardian drones to India in the wake of similar security interests across borders and sea, a first by a non-NATO country, the report said.
During the delegation-level meeting, the two leaders touched upon various topics ranging from purchase of military equipment to the bilateral relations between the two nations.
Prime Minister Rutte said the bonds between India and The Netherlands goes back to 1947 and these relations have become stronger over the years.
An article in this newspaper focused on the fact that no questions were taken during the joint press briefing of PM Modi and President Trump in the Rose Garden even though they were leaders of the oldest and largest democracies. The gorgeous lady was all smile as she greeted the Prime Minister.
Pertinently, Hours before Modi's arrival, the State Department imposed sanctions on Syed Salahuddin, the leader of Hizbul Mujahideen, the main rebel group that fights against Indian control in Kashmir.
Both the leaders discussed a range of issues including terrorism, defence and trade. Mutual economic investment, collaboration on renewable energy and climate change initiatives have been regarded areas of improvement, with the Obama administration inheriting a relationship that moved away from Cold War tensions under Clinton and Bush. The US president said that ties between India and the US have never been stronger and better. Here are some pictures from the Modi and Trump's meeting. "We're also looking forward to exporting more American energy to India as your economy grows, including major long- term contracts to purchase American natural gas, which are right now being negotiated, and we will sign them".
The piece also explains India's need to deepen ties with the United States in the face of a resurgent China that seeks to play a bigger role in the south Asian region where India has displayed dominance over the years. Trump also called for the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear and ballistic programs to be "rapidly" tackled, and thanked Modi for "joining us in applying new sanctions against Pyongyang".
