U.S. clears Guardian drone sale to India

U.S. clears Guardian drone sale to India

PM Modi on his arrival at the White House presented a hamper containing a traditional, handcrafted Himachali silver bracelet, tea and honey from Kangra valley and hand-woven shawls from J&K and Himachal Pradesh to the first lady, Melania Trump. The US' first couple warmly welcomed Modi and they were seen exchanging pleasantries and having a brief interaction before going inside the White House.

The expert further said that Trump considers India a "big power that requires his attention, but not as much as China and Russian Federation".

"I am sure that the convergence between my vision for a "new India and President Trump's vision for "making America great again" will add new dimensions to our cooperation", he said".

President Trump and Prime Minister Modi agreed that a close partnership between the United States and India is central to peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. "This summer India will celebrate the 70th anniversary of their Independence and on behalf of the US, I want to congratulate the Indians on this magnificent milestone", he said.

Earlier, in their joint press statement at the White House, Trump stressed on eliminating and destroying radical Islamic terrorism and emphasised on how both nations - the US and India - are deeply affected by the malaise of terrorism. "Reflecting the partnership, the USA has offered for India's consideration the sale of Sea Guardian Unmanned Aerial Systems, which would enhance India's capabilities and promote shared security interests", the statement said. And it "called on Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch terrorist attacks on other countries". In her media briefing, Ghanashyam said that the Indian Prime Minister also had an audience with King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and Queen Maxima during the course of his day's engagements.

After wrapping up an afternoon of meetings and talks, Modi said he has invited Trump and his family to visit India, while President Trump confirmed his daughter, Ivanka Trump, will head a USA delegation to India this fall for an entrepreneurship summit.

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that Indian companies have invested over Dollars 11 billion in the United States economy, creating and sustaining more than 52,000 jobs.

Cie de Saint-Gobain, a French manufacturer, said its systems had also been infected, though a spokeswoman declined to elaborate. The facility, called Gateway Terminal India, could not identify which shipment belonged to whom, Ms Prasad said.

'I don't think there is any need to repeat the fact that in India's economic development and our priorities for development, Netherlands is a natural partner, ' Modi, who was fresh from his much anticipated U.S. visit, added.

"Eliminating terrorism is among the topmost priorities for us".

Indian officials reject suggestions that Modi's "Make in India" platform is protectionist and complain about the US regulatory process for generic pharmaceuticals and rules on fruit imports. "Not many people know it, but both American and the Indian constitutions begin with the same three very lovely words: We the people", and yes, democractic nations came together.

He was referring to Prime Minister's two-day visit to the United States during which the two leaders vowed to strengthen co-operation on terror.

"President Trump and I have also spoken about strengthening bilateral defence technology and our trade and manufacturing partnership, which we believe will be mutually beneficial to us. Trying to get the price up a little bit". Trump said both nations are "determined" to destroy terrorist organisations and the radical ideology that drives them.

He said the Indian diaspora are the links and bridge between the people of the two countries. I have heard so much and I have been reading so much about you. Nisar also said that Pakistan would keep supporting separatist activities in Kashmir.
