President Trump, First Lady Depart India

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania departed New Delhi, Tuesday, February 25, following a two-day visit to India and talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spent a lot of time discussing trade issues in New Delhi but there was no announcement on a major trade deal.

“Our teams have made tremendous progress on a comprehensive trade agreement, and I’m optimistic we can reach a deal that will be of great importance to both countries,” Trump said.

He announced the completion of an agreement for India to buy $3 billion in helicopters and other military equipment from the United States, and said the countries were expanding cooperation on counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime security. Trump declared U.S-India relations to be “truly stronger than ever before.”
