Modi, Trump agree to enhance peace across Indo-Pacific region
 
(Washington, Aug 16, 2017, PTI): President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have agreed to enhance peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region by establishing a new two-by-two ministerial dialogue, which would elevate their strategic consultations, the White House said today.

Trump spoke with Modi last night to greet him on the eve of India's Independence Day.

During the phone call, Trump welcomed the first-ever shipment of American crude oil to India, which will begin this month from Texas.

He pledged that the US would continue to be a reliable and long-term supplier of energy to India, the White House said in a readout of the phone call between the two leaders.

"The leaders resolved to enhance peace and stability across the Indo-Pacific region by establishing a new two-by- two ministerial dialogue that will elevate their strategic consultations," the White House said, without giving details of the mechanism.

As the leaders of two of the world's largest and fastest-growing major economies, Trump and Modi looked forward to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India this November, the White House said, adding that Trump has asked his daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump to lead the US summit delegation.

"Prime Minister Modi thanked President Trump for his strong leadership uniting the world against the North Korean menace," it added.

Trump had recently warned North Korea that it would face "fire and fury" if it attacked the United States, while the North threatened to test-fire its missiles over Japan and towards the US Pacific island of Guam.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson extended his best wishes to the people of India on the country's Independence Day today.

"The US is proud to stand with the people of India, the world s largest democracy, in the cause for freedom and prosperity around the globe," he said.

"Prime Minister Modi's ambitious vision for the US-India relationship holds great promise for advancing our shared interests in the 21st century, and we look forward to the many years of friendship before us," Tillerson added.
