Washington: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday left for the Netherlands after having a productive meet with US President Donald Trump in the White House. The duo praised each other for extending support towards bilateral causes and vowed to fight terrorism together.
The Netherlands trip marks the final leg of his three-nation tour that started with Portugal. While he will be looking to forge a new relationship with the Dutch PM Mark Rutte, the fact that his meeting with Trump went smooth will be a good confidence booster.
Both Trump and PM Modi spoke extensively on terrorism and how terror safe heavens were a big reason for the increase in terror attacks. The duo promised to share and help each to strengthen co-operation on terror.
India and the US also urged Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch cross-border terror strikes.
“Wrapping up a historic visit, setting a new milestone in #India US relationship. PM departs for Netherlands, the last leg of his three-nation tour,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted.
