NEWS G20 OSAKA MODI TRUMP
OSAKA, Japan: US President Donald Trump on Friday congratulated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the first time they met after the Indian Parliament elections in April-May which gave the PM and his BJP a spectacular win.
“You deserve it. You have done a great job. I know that when you first took over, there were many factions fighting with each other, and now they get along well with you. It is a fantastic tribute to you and your abilities,” Trump said when the two leaders met on the sidelines of the G20 Summit here.
“We have become great friends and our countries have never been as close as they are today. I can say this with surety. We will work together in many ways, and that includes military ties too. Today we will be discussing trade,” Trump was quoted in the media as saying.
PM Modi said, “India-US vision is far-sighted and positive. We will strive to work for positive relationship with the US.” –IHN-NN
