Trump to welcome India's prime minister to White House

On fighting terrorism, Kugelman said the two leaders have a similar worldview - that "it needs to be destroyed wherever it rears its murderous head".

Modi arrived for his first meeting with the U.S. leader.

Officials were eager to downplay expectations of the visit, describing it as "no frills" - in contrast to Modi's first U.S. visit in 2014, when he basked in a rock star welcome at the Madison Square Garden arena in NY and addressed the United Nations.

Indian officials reject suggestions that Modi's "Make in India" platform is protectionist and complain about the U.S. regulatory process for generic pharmaceuticals and rules on fruit exports to the United States.

After an Oval Office meeting mid-afternoon, the leaders will dine together at the White House, though no press conference is scheduled.

The letter was signed by Republicans John Kennedy, Roy Blunt, Mike Crapo and James Lankford, and Democrat Amy Klobuchar.Sikh organizations planned a protest in front of the White House on Monday.While progress is expected in defense trade and cooperation, there are frictions elsewhere.Trump, who campaigned on an "America First" platform, has been troubled by the growing US trade deficit with India. "Those who suffered (Pakistan) because of this, is a different thing", Modi said while addressing the members of Indian diaspora here on Sunday.

The Prime Minister will meet top American CEOs of global giants later today, including Apple, Microsoft and Google, in Washington, with issues ranging from visas, investment and job creation expected to occupy centre-stage during the discussions.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks during the United Nations Vesak Day Conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka, May 12, 2017.

"I think my conviction is India in terms of foreign policy independence that is very well entrenched in the country no matter who is the ruling party." said Han.

But it is still unclear if Modi, during his meeting with Trump, will bring up this vexing issue that is agitating captains of India's booming IT industry. "These plans also showcase the enormous fruits of our relationships with enterprising US partners-worth many billions of dollars over the next decade alone-together with concomitant new employment opportunities across both societies", he said.

"I think it's a bit unfair".

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 Delhi. "But there have been two very good phone calls between President Trump and Prime Minister Modi that you can point to as showing both countries' interest in the relationship", the White House official argued.

Modi told them that his government was working on principles such as Minimum Government, Maximum Governance. The issues speculated to be discussed between two leaders includes H-1B visa, hate crime and trade.

Netanyahu, while speaking at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting, said, "Next week, the Indian Prime Minister, my friend, Narendra Modi will arrive in Israel, This is a historic visit to Israel".
