On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told US President Donald Trump that the relationship between India and the United States goes beyond mutual interest and can be beneficial for Asia and humanity at large. Both the leaders had a meeting in Manila on Monday and discussed a range of key issues including defence and security, trade ties and market access, threats posed by terrorism to the region and others.
Mr. Modi said, “The cooperation between India and the US can rise beyond bilateral cooperation. We are moving ahead together on many issues.”
Mr. Trump said Modi was doing ‘a fantastic job by bringing lots of factions in India together.”
