Trump affirmed that the United States continues to remove barriers to energy development and investment in the United States and to USA energy exports so that more natural gas, clean coal, and renewable resources and technologies are available to fuel India's economic growth and inclusive development, the statement said.

President Trump and PM Narendra Modi called North Korea's pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes as a grave threat to regional security and global peace.

The White House said Indian energy companies have signed more than Dollars 30 billion in long-term contracts for US- produced liquefied natural gas (LNG), including from Louisiana and Maryland.

Prime Minister Modi laid special emphasis on the growing camaraderie between India and the United States even as he addressed the media jointly with U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House here on Monday. "Technology, innovation and knowledge economy are also areas we are actively looking at", he said. Increased productivity, growth, job creation, and breakthrough technologies will remain strong drivers of the cooperation, he said.

Speaking in the Rose Garden after their talks, Trump said: "Both our nations have been struck by the evils of terrorism, and we are both determined to destroy terrorist organizations and the radical ideology that drives them". We will be enhancing the military cooperation and next month, will join the Japan Navy to take part in the largest Maritime exercise in the vast Indian Ocean. "This summer, India will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its independence, and on behalf of the United States, I want to congratulate the Indian people on this magnificent milestone in the life of your very, very incredible nation", he said.

The President said that he "always had a deep admiration for your country and for its people, and a profound appreciation for your rich culture, heritage and traditions".

Aguero seemed to have fallen out of favour at City and Gabriel Jesus appears to be Pep's preferred man up front. Aguero scored 33 goals in all competitions while Sanchez bagged 30 - though netted more in the Premier League.

"During my campaign, I pledged that if elected, India would have a true friend in the White House". Trump welcomed the parting gesture, patting Modi kindly on the back. Exports to the U.S. provide India its largest surplus with a trading partner - more than $24 billion in 2016 - for a country that ran a $105 billion trade deficit that year. India and the U.S. have come closer, especially during the presidencies of George W Bush and Barrack Obama, more because of strategic and economic reasons and not just because they both are vibrant democracies. Later, in the Oval Office, Trump sent social media abuzz when his handshake with Abe lasted a full 19 seconds. "But it is great to have you", he said.

While ties with some allies have been strained by Trump s complaints that Washington has been the loser in trade agreements, Modi appears sensitive to his host s emphasis on transactional diplomacy.

"The leaders also affirmed their support for a U.N. Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism that will advance and strengthen the framework for global cooperation and reinforce the message that no cause or grievance justifies terrorism", the statement said. Both leaders warmly shook hands and smiled in what was their first ever meeting.

"Jim Mattis, Secretary of Defence", MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted.
