“President Donald Trump called Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to congratulate him for his Bharatiya Janata Party’s historic election victory,” according to the White House.

“The president and prime minister pledged to continue to strengthen the United States-India strategic partnership, building on the achievements of the last two years.” it said.

The leaders also expressed that they look forward to seeing one another at the G-20 Summit in Osaka, where the US, India, and Japan will hold a trilateral meeting to pursue their shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific. — PTI
