President Trump said: "In just two weeks, you (Narendra Modi) will begin to implement largest tax overhaul in your country's history, we are doing that also by the way". "In the 70 years of the country's existence, no Indian Prime Minister has ever visited and this is further expression of the state of Israel's military, economic and diplomatic strength", Netanyahu stressed.

Trump also accepted Modi's offer to visit India, the White House statement added.

He thanked PM Modi fro inviting his daugher Ivanka to lead the US delegation to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India this fall and said, "I believe she has accepted". "Trying to get the price up a little bit", he said.

As global partners, the United States and India resolved to further strengthen their collaboration in health, space, oceans, and other areas of science and technology.

"I would like to thank President Donald Trump for his kind words about India". With PM Modi, Indian side was represented by India's Foreign Secretary, S. Jaishankar, National Security Adviser (NSA), Ajit Doval and the Indian ambassador to the US, Navtej Sarna.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has lauded India for its commitment to renewable energy and the Paris Climate Agreement.

During his interaction with Trump, PM Modi gifted the US President a folio containing original commemorative postal stamp, issued by India in 1965, to mark the death centenary of Abraham Lincoln. "Not many people know it, but both American and the Indian constitutions begin with the same three very attractive words: We the people", and yes, democractic nations came together. India is the fastest growing economy in the world Trump said and added, "We hope we will be catching up you very soon".

The optics - as seen on TV - showed Trump proffering his hand of friendship to Modi - he called him a "true friend" a couple of times in the course of the day - after their meeting in the Oval Office, and then shaking his hand and hugging him at the end of their media appearance at the Rose Garden.

"To assume a role as an outpost country in the US' strategy to contain China is not in line with India's interests".

"Trade, commerce and investment are key areas". Both leaders also expressed concern over rising instability in Afghanistan caused by terrorism, and agreed to continue strengthening coordination for ensuring peace and stability in the war-torn country.

"The relationship between India and the United States has never been stronger, never been better", Trump told reporters in the White House Rose Garden as he stood alongside the Indian premier.

"Expressing concern about the serious and grave threat posed by the spread of terrorism and violent extremism to both countries and the world, the Prime Ministers reaffirmed their commitment to combat terrorism and prevent radicalisation that could lead to violent extremism and reiterated the need for a unified and collective effort by the worldwide community to eliminate terrorism through a holistic approach", a joint communique stated.
