Trump and Modi hold first talks at White House

US President Donald Trump said Monday that the US-India relationship "has never been stronger" after holding talks here with visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, China's Xinhua news agency reported. Trump's "America First" slogan echo's Modi's own "Make in India" campaign.

One of the glorious success stories of Narendra Modi's prime ministership in the three years that he has been in office has been the excellent rapport he has built up with the Indian diaspora in countries that he has visited, especially in the developed world, be it the US, Canada, UK, Australia and Germany.

"Thank you very much", Trump said as he opened a meeting with Modi and an accompanying delegation. The Dutch prime minister, on the other hand, said that considering India is a global economic power now, the Netherlands has a lot to offer. India has the fastest-growing economy in the world.

In this context, the phrase "Kashmir to Kanyakumari" that is cited not by Modi alone but many other leaders, is not completely accurate either.

"We consider the U.S. as our primary partner for India's social and economic transformation in all our flagship programmes and schemes".

In the past, Modi too has stressed about the importance of securing the cyber borders, going on to say that the next war will be fought in the cyber area. "I would like to congratulate you", the US President said. The Indian prime minister will also hold a meeting with CEOs of Dutch companies and call on King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Queen Maxima.

"This summer, India will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its independence, and on behalf of the United States, I want to congratulate the Indian people on this magnificent milestone in the life of your very, very incredible nation", he said.

Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump warmly welcomed Modi, as he reached White House on Monday afternoon.

But Mr Ashok Soota, executive chairman of Happiest Minds Technologies, said that nothing dramatic related to H1B has happened in the country so far for the PM to discuss about it.

He said Europe is India's biggest trading partner and 20 per cent of India's export to Europe enters through the Netherlands.

The meeting brought together two nationalist leaders who have made efforts to boost their domestic manufacturing industry signature issues.

The two leaders, who held a meeting at the White House on Monday, also "called on all nations to resolve territorial and maritime disputes peacefully and in accordance with global law", the statement said.

Modi thus said India "would keep up close discussion and correspondence with the US" to accomplish the joint objective of "peace and security". "If selected, United State offer to sell F-16 and F/A-18 fighter aircraft to India would represent the most significant defence cooperation between the USA and India to date", the White House said.
