PM Narendra Modi arrives in the Netherlands after USA visit

America valued partner in our flagship programmes says PM Modi

Indian cricket team batsman Suresh Raina posted a photo of his meeting with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Amsterdam.

In a strong message to Islamabad, the USA and India have told Pakistan to ensure its territory is not used for terror attacks on other countries and asked it to bring to justice terrorists blamed for attacks in Mumbai and other places in India. "This is borne out of sheer jealousy and guilt as the prime minister's every foreign visit holds a mirror to the lost opportunities during the 10 years of UPA rule", Naidu said.

Prime Minister Modi first visited Portugal, where he, along with his Portuguese counterpart Antonio Costa, signed 11 MoUs for cooperation in areas such as double taxation avoidance, investments, science and technology, nanotechnology, space research, administrative reforms and culture.

Some of the topics that could headline the agenda are immigration, terrorism and regional security, China and trade and defence, the paper noted.


In another strong reference to Pakistan, Jaishankar said there was an extensive discussion between the two leaders on terrorism, "what its epicenter is" and how it is affecting the region, particularly the South Asian region where India is located.

In the US, Modi held talks with Trump during which the two leaders vowed to strengthen co-operation on terror.

Noting that publicly the meeting was non-controversial, the article said, "no issue on the table may have be more challenging than how the United States treats India like a "major defense partner" - a designation the Obama administration gave the country in 2016 - without angering neighboring Pakistan". The two leaders had spoken over phone thrice before this meeting.

Ni Feng, deputy director of the Institute of American Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Tuesday that Trump has given a "positive spin" to India-US relationship. Before their meeting began, he thanked India for ordering military equipment from the US. The paper referred to both leaders as "political outsiders who champion a muscular, country-first nationalism". India is the fastest growing economy in the world Trump said and added, "We hope we will be catching up you very soon".
