Donald Trump welcomes 'true friend' as PM Modi arrives in Washington

"But for the first time not one nation in the world raised a single question, about India's major step to conduct the surgical strikes against terror camps on Pakistani soil".

Some commentators have suggested Modi and Trump should have a natural affinity, having both risen to power in part by castigating the traditional ruling elite while offering a strongly nationalistic vision. He said there were proposals to hold bigger events this time also but he specifically wanted to meet the leaders who worked hard to organise the previous events during his visits to the US. Despite this, the visit is important and will give both leaders a chance to get to know each other. That process has already begun on Donald Trump's favourite stomping grounds: Twitter. Despite a temporary deterioration in ties after the arrest of an Indian diplomat in the U.S. 2013, the past decade has seen the two countries come together like never before.

During his White House speech announcing his withdrawal from the Accords in early June, Trump zeroed in on India and accused it of trying to strong-arm the worldwide community into paying billions of dollars in exchange for Delhi's signature on the Accords.

Delhi has eyed with curiosity Trump's rhetoric on immigration policies. Specifically, outsourcing as well as the presence of immigrant workers in his country.

For years, the United States has issued the H1B non-immigrant work visa to tens of thousands of Indians, largely from the telecom and IT sector, to the benefit of major multi-billion dollar US-based companies - such as the ones in tech-mecca Silicon Valley.

Then Trump accused India of seeking to profit from the Paris climate accord as he announced the USA withdrawal from the deal this month - drawing sharp denials from New Delhi.

The creative and entrepreneurial energy of our engineers, scientists and researchers, and their free movement between both countries, continue to help India and the United States retain their innovation edge and maintain competitiveness in the knowledge economy, he said.

Modi is said to have discussed a plethora of issues from visas and job creation to foreign investments and demonetization. This is likely to also be coupled with discussions about terrorism, including bringing up the question of Pakistan, Afghanistan and even China.

Trump, who campaigned on an "America First" platform, has been troubled by the growing U.S. trade deficit with India.

Rao termed Modi and Trump as unconventional global leaders.

President Donald Trump will host his "true friend" at the White House.

The CEOs seemed rather upbeat after their meeting with the Indian Prime Minister.

After an Oval Office meeting mid-afternoon, the leaders will dine together at the White House, though no press conference is scheduled. An American official has indicated that this was done at India's behest.
