PM Modi all set to visit US later this month

This would be Modi's first trip to the United States under the Trump administration.

Maintaining momentum in the counter-terror partnership and expanding defence ties are expected to figure prominently when PM Narendra Modi meets US President Donald Trump in Washington later this month. President Donald Trump has accused India and other countries of trying to extract "billions and billions and billions" of dollars in foreign aid from the developed world to sign up for the climate accord.

He will look for gains in dealing with Pakistan's role in promoting terrorism and India's case for a seat at the nuclear supplier's group besides enlarging the economic relationship. Prime Minister Modi traveled to Washington three times and Barack Obama made a historic trip to India to be the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations in 2015. "Their discussions will provide a new direction for deeper bilateral engagement on issues of mutual interest and consolidation of multi-dimensional strategic partnership between India and the USA", the MEA said.
