Will government of India go after Pakistan's proxies?

Freda Brock | 28 June, 2017, 17:59

US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi embraced each other as friends and partners Monday, vowing to work more closely on combating terrorism, the war on Afghanistan and defence cooperation.

Trump was speaking at the formal dinner with Modi at the historic Blue Room of the White House. "India's interests lie in a strong, and prosperous, and successful America", said Modi during their press briefing.

While, earlier this month, Trump singled out India during his announcement declaring the United States' withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

He said India and the USA are strong partners in the fight against terrorism.

To this end, Trump and Modi reiterated the importance of respecting freedom of navigation, overflight, and commerce throughout the region, it said. "When I think of a developed India, I think of a healthy India, particularly the good health of the women and children of our nation", he added.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited Trump to visit him in India, and capped the offer with a hug.

"Be assured that in this joint journey of our two nations towards development, growth and prosperity, I will remain a driven, determined, and decisive partner", he said.

The US president said that ties between India and the US have never been stronger and better.

From a visit that had begun with "low expectations", given the unpredictability factor of the current President, the Indians have more than one reason to smile. One very important fact that was noted and added to the surprise of the audience was that no questions were permitted following the statements made by the two leaders.

Prime Minister Modi, while thanking Trump for the warm welcome rendered to him, said the kind of welcome he was given, it was a welcome to the 125 crore people of India.

Indian officials reject suggestions that Modi's "Make in India" platform is protectionist and complain about the United States regulatory process for generic pharmaceuticals and rules on fruit imports. Ni said that Obama had "many ideas on using India to restrain China".

The statement from Trump went a long distance to dispel doubts that the relationship was floundering or drifting.

Some US-based Sikh and Kashmiri separatist groups protested and raised concerns related to civil rights in India in the wake of the volatile security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and recurring incidents of violence against religious minorities in India outside the hotel and White House. Modi pulled in Trump for a bear hug on the stage as the cameras rolled in the Rose Garden. The U.S. says the militant group has claimed responsibility for several attacks.

The meeting is the first between the leaders of the world's two largest democracies.

Trump has so far focused on outreach to China, India's other strategic rival, as he looks to Beijing to rein in nuclear-armed North Korea. The deal, estimated to be worth about $2 billion, is still subject to congressional approval.
