Trump to host Indian PM Modi at White House in late June

In spite of the difference on some issues, Modi's discussions with Trump are likely to find a common approach on matters related to South Asia, particularly the rise in infiltration from the neighbouring Pakistan, terrorism and India's case for a seat at the nuclear supplier's group.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to visit the United States on June 25-26 at the invitation of the country's President Donald Trump, officials said on Monday.

Regional security situation including Pakistan-sponsored terrorism and other worldwide issues are expected to figure prominently during the meeting of the two leaders.

Modi's visit to the U.S. comes at a time when Trump made critical comments about India while announcing America's decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement. The two leaders have spoken over phone at least thrice since the latter assumed office. The news is that Donald Trump is looking forward for his meeting with Narendra Modi.

Apart from ways to enhance trade and business cooperation, Modi and Trump are expected to discuss defence ties.

The two leaders "will look to outline a common vision for the United States-India partnership that is worthy of their 1.6 billion citizens", he added.

Trump's statement was swiftly rebuked by Indian Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj: "India didn't sign the Paris climate deal under pressure or greed for money".

A proposed overhaul of H-1B visas - working permits used by thousands of Indian software engineers to work in the United States - has caused enormous concern.
