There’s been huge anticipation for the meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump.
Modi, on Sunday, met CEOs of top US companies, including Time Cook of Apple and Sunder Pichai of Google.
Trump has set a positive tone for the upcoming meeting by calling Modi a “true friend” in a tweet.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently in United States in the second leg of his three-nation tour.
However, this is his first visit to US after the Trump administration came to power.
A senior White House official told reporters that President Donald Trump’s first working dinner with a foreign leader will be with the Indian Prime Minister.
The two leaders will meet at 3:30 pm EST on June 26, and will deliver a joint statement along with individual statements.
But there will be no press meet, “as preferred by both leaders”.
The first face-to-face interaction between Mr Trump and PM Modi is expected to focus on three major areas ie, defence, terrorism and energy.
Modi, who is on a three-nation tour, will visit Netherlands after concluding his US visit.
