US President Donald Trump has invited PM Narendra Modi to visit the United States later this year.
WASHINGTON: The relationship between the US and India will continue to grow stronger under President Donald Trump, a top White House official has said. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comment came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the new US President had a telephonic conversation last week.
Mr Spicer said that the two leaders had “a great conversation” last week. “They had a great conversation the other day and the relationship between the two countries will continue to grow stronger in this country,” Mr Spicer told reporters at his daily news conference yesterday.
However, the White House official did not respond to a question on expansion of the UN Security Council seat when asked about previous president Barack Obama’s endorsement for India as a permanent member of the 15-member body.
“I’m not going to get any further with respect to seats on the Security Council,” Mr Spicer said.
