The recent visit of Indian PM Narender Modi to USA has been one of the most productive visits. During this Visit Pm Modi on the first day was very much packed scheduled where the first day he met some top rank CEO through various swing slots during the day and evening CEO’s expected to meet Modi on Sunday include Apple’s Tim Cook, Walmart’s Doug McMillon, Caterpillar’s Jim Umpleby, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Microsoft’s Satya Nadella.
After meeting the CEO on Sunday, the day has come where the two powerful Leaders of the world meet for the joint news conference at the Rose Garden of the Whit House. The main motto of the meeting was to urge Pakistan to ensure terrorists didnt operate from its soil and to “expeditiously bring to justice ” those involved in 26/11 Mumbai blast, Pathankot blast and other terrorist attacks carried out by Pakistan-based groups.
Speaking to media the two leaders promised great co-operation and were determined to destroy terrorist organisations and radical ideology that drove them. “Fighting terrorism and doing away with the safe shelters, sanctuaries and safe havens will be an important part of our cooperation,” Modi said.
Speaking about China (though they did not take the name) on One Belt, One Road project . It said the two leaders “support regional economic connectivity through the transparent development of infrastructure and the use of responsible debt financing practices, while ensuring respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, the rule of law, and the environment”
India has objected to the China’s ambitious plan for a new Silk Route as the centrepiece of the project, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, runs through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, which New Delhi says challenges its sovereignty by lending legitimacy to Pakistan’s claim over PoK.
Modi and Trump also stressed the “importance of respecting freedom of navigation, overflight, and commerce” in the Indo-Pacific region and “called upon all nations to resolve territorial and maritime disputes peacefully and in accordance with international law”, a reference unmistakably to the South China Sea dispute.
The two supreme leaders spoke in private for about 40 minutes and then they were joined by their aides for a longer meeting.
First lady Melania Trump was also present to welcome the PM Modi and later Ivanka Trump ( Trump’s daughter) and her husband Jared Kushner (closest adviser of trump) joined them for a working dinner and many ‘bear hugs’ between Modi and Trump .
