Trump has spent more time dealing with North Korea than any other foreign policy issue.
Add another photo to the diplohug collection! I think what’ll make Delhi perhaps more happy is the positive tone of Trump’s statements through the day... If there is a spectrum with how US allies and partners have dealt with Mr Trump, you can put Macron and Merkel on one end and Abe on the other. Modi is closer to the Abe side.
The first thing would be for the both sides is to establish personal relationship, because a lot flows from that. Second they would like to see what India might be able to do more for example in [A]fghanistan. Not troops on the ground, I think they have a team which understands that it is not possible, perhaps more equipments more resources, more capacity buildings or training efforts.
