Trump to host Indian PM Narendra Modi in effort to strengthen ties

Parmenio Sano | 26 Giugno, 2017, 04:28

Ahead of his visit, Modi had said that he looked forward to the opportunity of having an in-depth exchange of views. "Modi will have two options: to engage in similar adulation, seeking to submissively gain Trump's trust, or alternatively go for a hardball approach, transactionally setting out India's core interests".

"There is a palpable fear in New Delhi that the new USA president's lack of focus on India, and limited appointment of South Asia focused advisers, has resulted in India falling off the radar in Washington", wrote Eurasia Group analysts Shailesh Kumar and Sasha Riser-Kositsky in a recent note.

"We will establish a joint innovation, and research and development, fund".

Modi on Sunday was to meet with top American business leaders - including the heads of Apple, Microsoft and Google - ahead of his meeting the following day with Trump.

But after his landslide election victory, Modi built a strong rapport with Obama who became the first sitting United States president to pay a second visit to India when he attended the 2015 Republic Day celebrations.

Relations between New Delhi and Washington warmed under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama as India sought greater foreign investment and trade ties with Western nations.

In his latest foreign visit to Portugal, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi signed MoUs in Lisbon for creation of an India Portugal Space Alliance and launched a unique startup Portal - the India-Portugal International StartUp Hub (IPISH) - in Lisbon.

The US CEOs had concerns about the economic scenario in India since demonetization and job creation, given PM Modi's focus on "Make in India". "All of this is an additional expression of Israel's enhanced global position in recent years as we strengthen the state of Israel", Netanyahu said. Modi's firm commitment to the Paris climate-change accord compared with Trump's impetuous pullout illustrated this.

"Much bureaucratic china within the US government had to be broken to get to this decision", he said. "Is this an indicator", asked the Director of Society for Policy Studies. "We don't see a zero-sum relationship". By offering to India advanced technologies in defence and energy that it has long sought, he will convey his administration's interest in India, even if this is not anchored in a larger vision of the worldwide order or global geopolitics.

Analysts admit that recent Trump policy posturing has been less than favourable for India.

The White House, which has deemed the final week of June as "Energy Week", will also highlight the energy partnership between the USA and India, citing $42 billion in long-term contracts for the export of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Louisiana and Maryland.

Bhaskar added that Modi would have to convincingly project that India's interests are aligned with USA interests. India's growth presents a win-win partnership for the country and the U.S., and American companies have a great opportunity to contribute to that, Modi told the CEOs, according to Bagley.

Modi and Trump have already had three conversations over telephone.

Terrorism and regional security are likely to be subjects of discussion when the two leaders meet, particularly in regards to Pakistan, a longtime foe of India. They said that bilateral economic relationship "severely underperforms" due to failure on India's India's part to enact market-based reforms, Reuters reported.
