PM Modi, US President Trump hold talks; discuss trade, defence, 5G
OSAKA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held talks with US President Donald Trump and discussed various bilateral and global issues including Iran, 5G communications networks, trade and defence ahead of the G-20 Summit.
Modi thanked Trump for expressing his "love towards India" in a letter recently delivered by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
The Prime Minister said that he wants to discuss Iran, 5G, bilateral relations and defence ties with Trump.
The US reimposed sanctions on Iran in November after pulling out of a 2015 nuclear accord between Tehran and six world powers。 To reduce Iran's crude oil export to zero, the US ended on May 2 waivers that had allowed the top buyers of Iranian oil, including India, to continue their imports for six months。
India, complying with the US sanctions, has ended all imports of oil from Iran。
Trump congratulated Modi on his election victory and said that the two countries would work together in many areas including military。
"We have become great friends and our countries have never been closer. I can say that with surety. We will work together in many ways including military, we'll be discussing trade today," he said.
On Iran, Trump said: "We have a lot of time. There's no rush, they can take their time. There is absolutely no time pressure".
The Modi-Trump meeting assumes significance as the US president, championing his 'America First' policy, has been a vocal critic of India for levying "tremendously high" duties on US products。
Before his arrival in Japan on Thursday, Trump tweeted, "I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further。 This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!"

Modi is the most appropriate person to be the PM and discuss all things technical, after all he used to send email in a time when there was no internet or email.

From here on I want to see only BJP winning all elections. If Modi retires there are many worthy contenders for next PM - Amit Shah, Yogi Adithyanath, Devendra Fadnavis to name a few. Congress should be buried forever.
从现在开始，我希望人民党赢得此后的所有选举。如果莫迪退休，下一届总理有很多有实力的竞争者——阿米特·沙阿、Yogi Adithyanath、Devendra Fadnavis等等。国大党应该永远被埋没。

网上彩票购买There is nothing to talk about. Both US AND India have taken their stand in trade, defence, terrorism, Pakistani jehad and oil purchase matter. Both are not shifting their stand, hence then talk what?

Mr。 PM, Don't bow your head before the US bully。 We are with you。 India hasn't too much to loose in a trade war with US but the US will have to suffer。

Never ever in my entire life have I seen US making every effort to appease an Indian PM. Such is the statute of Narendra Modi. Previously we would get to see how India would be forced to bend their backs at every turn .....but now the scenario has changed. Trump or Pompeo making a veiled threat to India against buying S-400 missiles got a good rebuke from MEA Jaishankar " Russia is our old Ally and we will do whatever is best for our national interest"
