New delhi sources stated that US President donald trump, who is on his maiden visit to india, arrived in the national capital on monday evening for the main leg of his trip during which he will hold extensive talks with prime minister narendra Modi. trump and modi will aim to expand India-US global partnership in their talks on tuesday, a day after both lavished praise on each other and vowed to script a better future for people of the two democracies. In delhi, trump was received at the airport here by Union minister Hardeep Singh puri and a number of senior officials. The US President will be staying at ITC Maurya hotel.
trump, who is accompanied by wife Melania, daughter Ivanka, son-in-law Jared Kushner and top brass of his administration, had earlier in the day arrived in ahmedabad around noon for a little less than 36 hour long trip to India. Tuesday's talks between modi and trump are likely to send across a clear message of growing congruence of interests between india and the US on major geopolitical developments in the region and beyond, particularly when china has been expanding its military and economic clout.
However, the talks between the two leaders are unlikely to produce tangible outcome in resolving thorny issues like trade tariffs.
