President Trump to Meet PM Modi on June 27

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to hold his first meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump on June 27. Modi will also address a couple of business meetings organized by the U.S.-India Business Council and CEOs’ Forum.

The agenda for the meeting with the President will focus on trade and economic ties between the two countries; H1B visas; and defense ties. In April, U.S. National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster visited India and met Modi. He emphasized the importance of the U.S.-India strategic relationship and reaffirmed India’s designation as a ‘Major Defense Partner.
