Indian PM Modi visits Portugal on trip to meet with Trump

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay had said Modi's visit to the USA has "its own significance because it will be the first visit of the Prime Minister to engage with the new leader, with the new President (Donald Trump) after the elections last year" in the United States. "We're seeking to roll out the red carpet".

"He has expressed very positive feelings and said if he won, India would find a true friend in the White House".

These mutual benefits, that level of trust and interdependence, are what advocates of the US-India strategic partnership, my organisation prominently among them, have been working for and hoping for-for decades. We like to encourage that trend.

"Some of the defense systems we're talking about we don't believe impact Pakistan", the official added. The nature of the relationships are different. "So, we think that's very significant" said an official on Modi's arrival.

The Trump administration official said the U.S. relationship with India and Pakistan were separate and "stand on their own terms".

Relationship with India and Pakistan is not a zero-sum game, he said. During his address, Shri Modi highlighted several aspects of India-Portugal partnership.

We are celebrating 70 years of the establishment of Indo-Dutch...

"We believe it's in both countries' interests".

"And of course, the United States is the world's technological leader in the kind of systems that you have mentioned", the official said in response to a question.

"Bilateral trade has grown 17 per cent previous year", Modi said. We do cooperate with Pakistan on some security and defence and counter terrorism issues. Again we don't see as zero sum game.

The White House official said the Trump administration plans to enhance India's role as a key power in the region and such high tech defence sales are what "we give to our closest partners". It is not about Pakistan.

India, a big buyer of US arms that was recently named by Washington as a major defence ally, wants to protect its 7,500- km (4,700-mile) coastline as Beijing expands its maritime trade routes and Chinese submarines increasingly lurk in regional waters.

In a statement posted on Facebook, Modi said his two-day visit to Washington from 25 June was at the invitation of Trump.

"India has played a positive role in Afghanistan, the United States believes". New Delhi's efforts are appreciated not just by the Afghan government but also by the people, the official said.

"And, the foreign direct investment from Portugal to India, though small, has doubled during 2016-17". They built the parliament building. As such, "this is an area that the two can increase their coordination and their consultation", the official said.

Responding to concerns about personal security for lawmakers after last week's gun attack at a Congressional baseball practice, U.S. House leaders are moving to provide extra money to members for protection back home, as well as new funding to bolster the work of police and security officials on Capitol Hill.
