Modi-Trump talks on June 26

Modi-Trump talks on June 26

Spicer said that during the visit the two leaders "will look to outline a common vision for the US-India partnership that is worthy of their 1.6 billion citizens". India-US ties blossomed under the Obama administration, which saw India as a partner to balance China's growing weight in Asia.

Despite the recent hiccups over the issue, US-India trade has grown six-fold since 2000, from Dollars 19 billion to USD 115 billion in 2016, according to the White House.

Addressing the common interests of the two countries in an environment where Trump's promotion of a policy of "Buy American, hire American" is stoking apprehensions in India, Spicer on Monday said: "US energy and technologies, including natural gas, are helping to build Prime Minister Modi's vision for a new India and creating thousands of American jobs in the process".

Background conversations with officials and the one pithy sentence in the pre-visit statement suggests that without being dogmatic, New Delhi is ready for a "new direction" while at the same time hoping to consolidate what already exists, particularly in the area of defense and military cooperation. They share a populist streak and a taste for social media, and have spoken three times by phone. He praised Modi for championing bureaucratic reform and economic growth.

A proposed overhaul of H-1B visas - working permits used by thousands of Indian software engineers to work in the United States - has caused huge concern.

Trump won't say if Comey conversations were taped
Asked if he would speak under oath, Trump launched into what started as a declaration but ended as a near-unintelligible ramble. Speaking beside Iohannis, Trump suggested his pressure on other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members had had an effect.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said India did not sign the Paris accord because of the lure of money and would continue to be part of it, regardless of whether the United States participates.

Earlier this year, Mr Trump said he considered India "a true friend and partner ".

India hopes Trump's vow to take a harder line on Islamic extremism will mean a tougher stance on Pakistan over militants that India blames for attacks on its territory.

A statement from the Uttar Pradesh government said Modi assured Adityanath of support to the developmental schemes introduced by him in the state and appreciated the works of his administration.

U.S. -India defense ties have grown significantly in recent years.
