Sending out a powerful message to Pakistan, India and the US late on Monday urged the country to make sure that its territory isn’t utilised to launch diplomatic terror strikes and to “expeditiously” bring to justice the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai and Pathankot strikes.
President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged to bolster efforts to fight terrorism and eliminate safe havens for terrorists. On his trip to the United States, a joint presser was dealt with by Modi with President Trump on Tuesday at Rose Garden in the White House. Here is the full joint announcement by Modi and Trump: how
Thank you very much. Prime Minister Modi, thank you for being here with us today. It’s a excellent honor to welcome the leader of the world’s largest democracy .
I’ve always had a profound respect for your country and for its people, and a profound appreciation for your rich culture, heritage and traditions. India will celebrate the anniversary of its liberty, this summertime, and on behalf of the USA, I wish to congratulate the Indian folks with this milestone in your very amazing nation’s life span.
During my campaign, I vowed that if elected, India would have a true friend in the White House. And that is what you have — a true friend. The friendship between India and the USA is built on shared values, such as our shared devotion to democracy. Equally American and the Indian constitutions begin with the same three words: We the people, although not lots of men and women understand it.
The Prime Minister and I both understand the critical importance of those words, and this helps to create the basis of cooperation between our two nations. Relations between nations are most powerful when they’re devoted to the pursuits of those folks we serve. And after our meetings I will state that the association between India and the United States has never been more powerful, hasn’t been improved.
I am pleased to declare to the media, to the American public, and to the Indian public, that Prime Minister Modi and I are world leaders in social media — (laughter) — we’re leaders — giving the citizens of the nations the chance to hear straight from their elected officials, and so for people to hear directly from these. I guess it’s worked in the two cases.
I am thrilled to salute you, ” Prime Minister Modi, and the Indian people for everything you’re accomplishing together. Your achievements are vast. India has the fastest growing market on earth. We hope we’re going to be catching you soon I need to inform you that. We’re working with it.
In only two weeks, you will begin to execute the greatest tax overhaul on your nation’s history — we’re doing this also, by the way — producing great new opportunities for your taxpayers. You have a large vision for improving infrastructure, and you’re currently fighting with government corruption, and and it is a grave threat to Christianity.

Together, our nations can help chart a positive path to the foreseeable future, one that unleashes the power of new technologies, new infrastructure, and the excitement and enthusiasm of very hardworking and very dynamic men and women.
I look forward to working with you, Mr. Prime Minister, to create jobs within our nations, to increase our markets, and to create a trading relationship that is fair and reciprocal. It’s essential that we reduce our trade deficit, and that barriers be eliminated into your own markets.
I was pleased to learn about an Indian Airlines recent arrangement of 100 fresh American airplanes, one of the largest orders of its own kind, that will encourage thousands and thousands of American jobs. We’re also anticipating exporting more power as your market grows, such as major contracts to purchase all-natural gas, that can be now being negotiated, and we will sign them. Trying to find the price.
To further our economic partnership, I am excited to report that the Prime Minister has encouraged my own daughter, Ivanka, to direct the US delegation to the International Entrepreneurship Summit in India this autumn. And I think she has accepted.
Finally, the security partnership between the USA and India is extremely important. The evils of terrorism have struck both our countries, and now we are decided to destroy terrorist organizations. We will destroy radical Islamic warfare. Our militaries are working daily to increase cooperation between our forces. Next month, they’ll join along with the infantry to happen from the largest maritime exercise ever conducted in the huge Indian Ocean.
I also thank the Indian people for their gifts to the effort in Afghanistan, and for joining us in implementing new sanctions against the North Korean regime. The North Korean regime is something that has to be taken care of, and probably dealt with rapidly and is causing problems.
Working together, I truly believe our two nations might set an example for many different states, make great strides in beating common dangers, and also make great progress in unleashing amazing prosperity and expansion.
Prime Minister Modi, thank you again for joining me today, and for visiting our country and our wonderful White House and Oval Office. I liked our fruitful conversation this day, and look forward to its continuation tonight at dinner. The future of the partnership hasn’t looked brighter. The United States and India will be tied together in friendship and respect.
Prime Minister Modi, thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.)

President Trump, I’d once again like to thank you for the period you’ve spent with me. I’d like to give special thanks for that to you.
My trip and our talks today will mark an essential page on the history of the cooperation and cooperation between our two countries. The talks between his Excellency, President Trump, also myself today have been extremely important from most points of view, for several reasons: Because they were based on mutual confidence; because of the convergence and similarities they revealed within our worth, and our priorities, and in our interests and concerns; since they focused on the greatest levels of achievement in our cooperation, and mutual assistance, and partnership; since our two nations are international engines of growth; since the all-around or comprehensive financial expansion and joint progress of both nations and both societies is your most important objective for both the President and itself, and will stay so; since the top priority for both President Trump and myself is to secure our society from international challenges like terrorism; and since our aim is the strengthening of India and the USA — just two great democracies in the world — buddies.
Our robust strategic partnership is such that it impacts upon virtually all aspects of human effort. In our conversation today, President Trump and now I’ve discussed all measurements of India-U.S. connections at length. Both countries are committed to some architecture that will require our partnership to new heights.
In this connection, in both nations, increased productivity, expansion, job development, and breakthrough technology — an involvement towards each of them really are, and will stay, powerful drivers of our cooperation, and will provide further momentum to our connection.
We consider the USA as our principal partner for India’s economic and social transformation in all our flagship programs and strategies. I am sure that the convergence between my eyesight for a “fresh India and President Trump’s vision for “making America great again” will add new dimension for our cooperation.
I am very clear about the reality that India’s interests lie at a powerful, and profitable, and successful America. In the identical manner, India’s growth and its increasing role in the international level are from the USA’s interest.
One of those common priorities will be the evolution of trade, commerce, and investment connections. And in this regard, in knowledge-economy sectors, invention, and the technology, the growth and deepening of cooperation can also be among our priorities. Towards this end, we shall take steps to further fortify our successful partnership.

Friends, we aren’t just spouses by chance. We are also partners in dealing with future and current challenges that we may be faced with. Now, throughout our meeting, we discussed the most serious challenges of terrorism, extremism, and radicalization, that are the major challenges confronting the world today. And we have agreed to enhance our cooperation in fighting against such scourges. Fighting terrorism and doing away with safe havens, sanctuaries, and the safe shelters will be an important part of our cooperation.
With regard to our shared issues on terrorism, we’ll also increase our sharing of intelligence, and exchange information to deepen and enlarge our coverage coordination as far as possible.
We also talked at length on regional issues. The rising instability, in Afghanistan, because of terrorism is one of our concerns. Both America and India have played an important part in ensuring its safety and rebuilding Afghanistan. In order to achieve our objectives for stability and peace in Afghanistan, we’ll maintain close communication and consultation with the U.S. to increase coordination between our two countries.
From the Indo-Pacific area, to be able to keep peace, stability, and prosperity in the area, this is also another aim of our strategic alliance within this area. The possibilities for enhancing cooperation to be able to protect our interests will continue to determine the measurements of our partnership. We will continue to work with the USA within this area.

The bolstering of India’s defense abilities, with the assistance of USA, is something that we genuinely appreciate. We also have decided to boost security alliance between the two nations. President Trump and I also have spoken about strengthening defense technologies and our commerce and production partnership, which we think will be mutually beneficial for us.
We also discussed international issues and our shared strategic interests. In this context, we’re extremely grateful for the continued support of the USA for India’s membership of international institutions and regimes. We appreciate the service, as this is in the interest of both our countries.
