Defence, Security & trade to dominate agenda during US Prez Trump's visit to India next week

@MEAIndia
External Affairs Ministry has said that India is eagerly awaiting US President Donald Trump's visit and expressed confidence that it will provide an opportunity to review bilateral ties and further strengthen the global strategic partnership. The US President will begin his maiden visit to India from Ahmedabad on the 24th of this month. The two-day visit is also going to be the first stand alone visit by a US President to India.

Briefing media yesterday External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Raveesh Kumar said, all issues including defence, security and trade are expected to come up during the restricted and delegation level talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the US President to be held on the 25th of this month in New Delhi.

Mr Kumar also said, the issues relating to H1B visa are likely to figure in the talks between the two leaders. The bilateral trade between India and US has already been growing at more than 10 per cent per annum for the past two years and trade deficit has been declining steadily.


AIR Ahmedabad correspondent reports that the US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad and address a public gathering.
