Donald Trump has invited Modi to Washington after the last rang him in January to commend the new president on his induction.
Washington: The maiden meeting amid US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi might “set forth a vision” to enlarge the US-India partnership in a determined way, the White House has stated.
The frontrunners of the world’s two biggest democracies, home to 1.6 billion individuals, will meet on 26th June to confer a gamut of two-sided issues together with terrorism and India’s concerns over likely changes in H-1B visa guidelines.

“I think you can anticipate, the two of them to fix a forth vision that will enlarge the US-India partnership in a determined and commendable way of both nations’ people,” Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary said to reporters at his news conference.
Sean said that the two leaders were anticipated to fix a “common vision” on intensifying the US-India partnership. He quoted fighting terrorism, endorsing economic growth and improvements and increasing security cooperation in the Indo-Pacific area as shared significances.
Trump has invited Modi to Washington after the last rang him in January to applaud the new president on his induction.
“The president and PM have had many positive phone conversations, and anticipate furthering discussion … whether it’s fiscal growth and improvements, fighting terrorism, increasing the cooperation as main defence partners,” Sean said in retort to a question.
The two-sided talks look to be no bed of roses as they come among thorny issues like US’ tactics to reduce the count of H-1B visa openings that are mostly used by Indian IT workers and its extraction from the historic climate agreement.
The White House stated that the US-India commerce has grown six-fold from 2000; from USD 19 billion to USD 115 billion in the year 2016, in spite of the recent hitches over the H1-B visa matter. “US energy and expertise, including natural gas, are helping to build Modi’s visualization for a new India and making thousands of US jobs in the procedure,” Sean said.
Especially, Modi’s US visit, which would start on 25th June, comes in the backdrop of Trump’s declaration to withdraw the US from the historic Paris Climate Agreement contracted by above 190 other nations.
In his declaration of the decision for which he got a global denunciation, Donald Trump had blamed China and India for the US withdrawal. “India makes its contribution contingent on getting billions and billions of dollars from advanced countries,” he had said.
Sturdily rejecting Trump’s argument, India said it had signed the Paris deal not under pressure or for lure of money but because of its commitment to guard the environment.
Through his visit to France this month, Modi even stated that India would “go above and beyond” the Paris deal to save the climate for future peers. Apart from customs to improve trade and business collaboration, Modi and Trump are predictable to discuss defence ties.
