Trump Reports Progress Toward Trade Agreement With India

President Trump announced progress toward a potential trade agreement between the United States and India in a joint public appearance with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

I know Prime Minister Modi will agree that this has been a very productive visit for both of our countries. Earlier today we expanded our defence cooperation with agreements for India to purchase more than 3 billion dollars of advanced American military equipment, including Apache and MH-60 Romeo helicopters, the finest in the world. These deals will enhance our joint defense capabilities as our militaries continue to train and operate side by side. In our discussions Prime Minister Modi and I affirmed our two countries’ commitment to protecting our citizens from radical Islamic terrorism. In this effort the United States is also working productively with Pakistan to confront terrorists who operate on its soil. Together the prime minister and I are revitalizing the Quad Initiative with the United States, India, Australia, and Japan. An expanded cooperation on counter-terrorism, cybersecurity and Maritime security to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific.
