Indian Prime Minister Modi visits the U.S. and Israel
India’s state election results
Choices: Inside the making of India’s foreign policy
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.
I think they'd [Modi and Trump] also like to see perhaps the establishment of a dialogue mechanism to sort out problems on the trade and investment side and on the India's side the immigration. So, may be create a kind of economic dialogue that then can solve some of these problems and I think they would like to see few deals come down the line and we might see one drone purchase deal.
