India-US to Boost Defence Relationship, Squeeze China — ASEAN Summit

India-US to Boost Defence Relationship, Squeeze China — ASEAN Summit India-US to Boost Defence Relationship, Squeeze China — ASEAN Summit

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have pledged that the US and India should have the world's greatest militaries as they discussed bilateral strategic partnership and their shared commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific region.

Though he denied that the new U.S. foreign policy has something to do with containing China's rise, it is a well-understood fact that Trump seeks India's friendship in the region as in today's era it considers the communist nation a political, security an economic threat to it.

The two leaders also discussed their shared commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific region, a day after officials from India, Australia, Japan and the U.S. held talks to formalise a quadrilateral alliance.

"The relations between India and the U.S. are growing, and I also feel that the relationship between India and the U.S. is not only for mutual interest".

Modi's remarks reflected the growing convergence on strategic issues between the two sides at a time when the Quad, which is being seen a counter-balance to China, has increased efforts aimed at keeping the Indo-Pacific region free, open and inclusive.

Earlier the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had said the Trump administration was considering India as a strategic partner which is not specific to the region.

While unveiling his new Afghanistan strategy in August, Trump had said that with India "we are committed to pursuing our shared objectives for peace and security in South Asia and the broader Indo-Pacific region".

President Donald Trump is wrapping up his extensive trip to Asia with an global summit and one-on-one meetings with worldwide partners, including his Philippine host who is overseeing a bloody drug war.

The LA Time report said, "Bolstering the shift is Trump's personal affinity for Indian PM Narendra Modi and his distaste for Mulsim-dominated Pakistan, as well as concern about China's growing military and economic power and Chinese President Xi Jinping's rise to Mao Tse-tung like status". "There are many issues on which we are working together", Modi said. That's what I hear, and that's good news. "So I want to congratulate you".

President Donald Trump is holding friendly talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India as he nears the end of his lengthy Asia trip.

"I would like to assure you whatever the expectations are of the world, of the U.S. from India, India has always made efforts to fulfil those expectations and we will continue to do so in the future too", he added.

Hailing India as "the largest democracy in the world", Trump said, "Since India opened its economy, it has achieved astounding growth and a new world of opportunity for its expanding middle class".
