Thanking Donald Trump, Narendra Modi said, “What you have said about India and its history and culture, I thank you for your acknowledgement.”
PM Modi expressed gratitude as he said, “President Trump has not just honoured Indians in India but also Indians in the US. Trust between nations is important. In India, we say trust is where friendship is unshakable. I have seen how relations between India and the US have grown. When I had visited the US, Trump told me that India has a true friend in the White House. I am happy that the US is a partner in India’s progress.”
Modi said, “Today India is not just creating a world record of sending the most satellites at once, but also the world record of the quickest financial inclusion.”
“US is India’s largest export partner. We have the most number of military exercise with the US. US is India’s biggest partner in R&D. India’s digital economy will provide good space for the US to invest in India. India and US are natural partners. We are together in our fight against terror. We are inspired by a long term vision. Our cooperation will grow and we will fulfil the dreams of our nations. We are glad that we could have you and your family, President Trump,” he further said.
“Our partnership cannot just contribute to the stability of the Indo-Pacific region, but also contribute towards resolving many other global affairs,” PM Modi said. He said the Indo-US bilateral relationship is inspired by a long-term vision and not by short-term goals.
