Modi meets Trump

The ties between India and the United States are growing, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi after holding a bilateral talk with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of ASEAN Summit in Philippines on Monday.

“Our (India-US) relations go beyond, we are working for future interests of Asia and humanity,” Modi said in Manila.

“It’s an honour to meet you again,” Trump told Modi.

Both the leaders also discussed a range of key issues, including defence and security.

The meeting in the Philippines capital came a day after officials of India, the US, Japan and Australia held talks to give shape to the much,talked-about quadrilateral alliance to keep the strategically important Indo-Pacific region free, open and inclusive.
