Modi and Trump also vowed to strengthen efforts to fight terrorism and eliminate safe havens for terrorists.

Rick Rossow, an India expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the frictions in U.S.

Chinese experts also allayed speculations that Trump would use India as a "pawn" to restrain China, which an opinion article in the Global Times had warned earlier.

A day after India and the United States asked Islamabad to rein in cross-border terror, China on Wednesday put up a strong defence of Pakistan, saying it was at the frontlines of the fight against terrorism.

The leaders said they would work more closely to confront global terrorism and terror sanctuaries, and to promote stability in the Indo-Pacific region and maritime security cooperation.

"Both our nations have been struck by the evils of terrorism and we are both determined to destroy terrorist organizations and the radical ideology that drives them", Trump said.

In a joint briefing with President Trump after the meeting, the visiting Indian premier said: "We talked about terrorism, extremism and radicalisation, and agreed to co-operate on this". "It is important that we reduce our trade deficit with your country", he added.

He said the United States administration has declared Syed Salahuddin of Hizbul Mujahideen as a "global terrorist", reflecting Indias concerns in the matter.

Commentators had predicted that Trump and Modi would find much in common, with both men having won power by portraying themselves as establishment outsiders.

The drone deal - India will reportedly buy 22 drones for between $2 to 3 billion - was being seen as a key test of the India-US relationship.

With the Trump administration undertaking a review of the H-1B visa, the most sought-after by Indian IT professionals, the issue had taken centrestage ahead of Modi's United States visit with the issue expected to figure prominently in bilateral discussions.

"We may leave thorny issues such as climate change, NSG and immigration, among others, to a future date", said a senior official, indicating that this was a "no-frills" visit, for talks expected to set the course for India-U.S. ties the next few years. He also termed the US' move as "irresponsible" and made clear that Washington would have to face "extremely unsafe consequences" for its deliberate provocations.

For his part, Modi cited Trump's "vast and successful experience in the business world" and even gave a shout-out to Trump's campaign mantra of "making America great again" in his statement.

The Washington Post also reported that first daughter Ivanka Trump will be traveling to India to attend an entrepreneurship summit, on the heels of a controversial Fox & Friends interview during which she said, "I try to stay out of politics".

A joint statement released after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged Pakistan not to let its territory be used by terrorists for attacks on other countries.

When he welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May to the White House in late January, Trump ignited a tabloid frenzy in Great Britain when the two leaders held hands as they walked along the White House colonnade.
