US President Donald Trump in a conversation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the G-20 summit in Osaka, said that India and the US have become great friends and the relationship between the two countries has never been closer, ANI reported.
Trump later congratulated Prime Minister Modi for his landslide victory and commended him for doing a great job. He added that the US is planning on doing “very big trade deals” with India which includes discussion on 5G and defence deals.
Trump said that it was “great fun” talking with Prime Minister Modi in the past and that he was looking forward to more talks during the summit.
Earlier, Prime Minister Modi had a trilateral discussion with Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Ahead of landing in Japan, Trump had criticised India for increasing tariffs on 28 items, which was in retaliation to the US withdrawing preferential access to Indian products.
