Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be meeting President Trump and discuss on ways to expand the US-India partnership. The meet will happen on June 26 and the discussion will also include topics such as terrorism, possible changes in H-1B visa and ways to enhance business cooperation. According to the White House spokesman Sean Spicer, Trump and Prime Minister Modi have already had a number of positive phone calls.

The talks will discuss US-India trade plans, which has already skyrocketed from $19 billion in 2000 to $115 in 2016, a six-fold increase. US energy and technologies, that have been helping develop India further, will also be a party of the discussion.

However, regardless of US presence in the Paris Climate Deal, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to the French President Macron that India will go above and beyond for the Paris deal.

So, Trump will be meeting Narendra Modi. I can’t really tell how the meeting will go. Both the leaders are trying to promote their own country first, and their own domestic manufacturing. Both stand on the opposite sides regarding Climate Change and even the H1-B visa.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet Chinese President Xi Jingping at the SCO summit, and they are expected to discuss a variety of issues including sanctions against JeM chief Masood Azhar, CEPC and NSG.

India wants to list the Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar under UN Security Council Resolution 1267 for a while now, but every single time China has blocked the sanction.

India also missed the BRF in may, which was attended by representatives from several countries, as China wanted to spill more information regarding the CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) because it is a known fact that it runs through PoK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir).

China was also furious over India’s welcome to Tibetan leader, Dalai Lama, who also met Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, the first time the Tibetan spirtual leader met a serving Indian President in several decades.

All these rifts and incidents cause a tense atmosphere during these summits as leaders from various countries try to decide how to act in the presence of the other nations. Though I am sure that India-China can/will have a strong future together if things go well. They might be able to form the largest trade entities.
