Surprisingly, Narendra Modi is the first leader to be invited to the White House, had a one-on-one interaction with the President, the due also held a joint conference for the media post interaction, which somehow appeared to leave some positive impacts in the angles of people's favor.
"India is now a global economic power". A head of his meeting with Trump, the PM spoke about surgical strike on Pakistan-based terror camps to show how decisive India can act.
Mr Trump said he would like a trading relationship that is "fair and reciprocal".
Defense trade has increased from Dollars 1 billion in 2008 to USD 15 billion at present, said the report.
"India and the U.S have played a crucial role in the redevelopment of Afghanistan and its security".
"Our diaspora are our 'Rashtradoots.' We are immensely proud of their accomplishments and their passion towards India & India's progress", Modi said at the address.
Mr Modi, a Hindu nationalist but also leader of a nation with almost 175 million Muslims, stressed the importance of "doing away" with terrorist sanctuaries and safe havens, apparently reflecting Indian concerns about militants based in Pakistan. "The journalists were told ahead of time that there would be no questions allowed - a break from the typical Rose Garden tradition of two questions from each press delegation", the article said.
"It is important that barriers be removed to the export of USA goods into your markets and that we reduce our trade deficit with your country", he said. It was not clear on whose insistence questions from reporters were not taken. The paper referred to both leaders as "political outsiders who champion a muscular, country-first nationalism".
Thanking the key European nation for backing India's MTCR membership, he said, "Because of your support India got the membership of the MTCR".
Trump administration's restrictions on H1B visa can seriously impact India's IT sector.
Modi swooped in for two big bear hugs with the US president during their joint statements in the Rose Garden, wrapping his arms around Trump's midsection and ending their first embrace with a lingering handshake that stretched the president's arm between their two lecterns.
The two prime ministers stressed that there can be no justification for acts of terror on any grounds whatsoever agreeing that there should be zero-tolerance on terrorism, the statement said.
India's foreign policy orientation has seen a paradigm shift in the recent years, especially under Modi who has made repeated visits to the U.S. to gain a momentum for New Delhi-Washington relations. "India has been alarmed to see China expand investments in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Maldives and other traditional allies".
Before he goes to the White House, Modi will meet separately on Monday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. It said the meeting was 'long on proclamations of friendship and short on confrontation over delicate policy issues'.
India related activities in Israel have also attracted far more attention in view of Modi's visit than ever before. "7000 reforms, real estate, defence, etc FDI".
