PM Modi tells Trump India, US will hopefully meet soon to discuss trade
Prime Minister Narendra Modi told US President Donald Trump that he is hopeful that representatives from the two countries will meet again soon to discuss trade issues, the government said in a statement on Monday.
Modi expressed hope that India’s commerce minister and the US trade representative would meet soon to discuss bilateral trade prospects, the government said.
Washington confirmed the leaders had spoken on Monday. “The two leaders further discussed how they will continue to strengthen United States-India economic ties through increased trade, and they look forward to meeting again soon, the White House said.
US and Indian trade negotiators ended talks in July without making major progress on a range of disputes over tariffs and other protectionist measures imposed by both sides that are straining bilateral ties, officials have told Reuters.
