In USA, Mr Modi and President Donald Trump comprehensively reviewed bilateral relations and laid down the future road map.
Our correspondent covering the visit of the Prime Minister reported that the Prime Minister’s visit focused primarily on four broad areas: one, furthering India’s strategic interests, two- projection of India as a country with fast track reforms coupled with high economic growth making it a strong opportunity for investment; third- seek collaborations in areas like skill development, knowledge based society and frontier areas of science and technology and four- reviving bonds with Indian Diaspora and seek their contribution for the development of India of their dreams.
The first ever Modi Trump meeting reaffirmed close Indo-US relations with President Trump reiterating himself a true friend of India. India not only received full support in its fight on terrorism from the three countries but the US went a step further by calling Pakistan to put an end to terror.
