PM Modi urges US Defence industry to set up manufacturing base

PM Narendra Modi arrives in Singapore for 2-day East Asia Summit given rousing welcome by Indian community

"We believe that the summit will likely occur after the first of the year, but the when and the where of that is still being worked out", Pence told reporters after meeting South Korean President Moon Jae-in. "We agreed that in a new relationship we are building with the United States where trade is expanding, we need to find ways in which we can help that process to take place", Gokhale said. "Both sides agreed that there had been a substantial enhancement in our defence relationship, in our imports of equipment from the U.S., but the prime minister in particular stressed that there was a great opportunity for the United States in India in making defence equipment and setting up defence industry in India". "And in that context the Prime Minister expressed hope that this would be the approach that U.S. might take when it looks at the whole issue of the H-1B visa", Gokhale said. "There were some discussions on how we should enhance this sort of trade".

But India remains wary of being drawn into any U.S. strategy that might involve the containment of China, although the two nations have stepped up bilateral defence ties and military exercises.

"There was a sense of convergence both on bilateral issues and on global issues and we look forward to taking the relationship now in the coming months and in 2019", he said.

Trump has said he hopes to have a second meeting with Kim early next year, but talks between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a top North Korean official planned for last week, partly to prepare for the meeting, were cancelled. He felt that India's contribution in ensuring this would be important.

On the margins of these summits, the prime minister would hold bilateral meetings with other leaders.

Modi and Pence continued their discussion on maintaining a free and open Indo-Pacific.

All eyes on Rohingya as ASEAN summit nears a close
It said some 130,000 people, including many Rohingya , remain internally displaced in central Rakhine. Suu Kyi was brief in her remarks, saying each country knew their own situation best.

"PM Narendra Modi participated at ASEAN-India Breakfast Summit in Singapore".

Before departing for the summit of the Association of Southeast Nations (ASEAN), which focuses on economic and defense issues faced by more than 630 million people across 10 nations, Pence insisted that American commitment to the region "has never been stronger".

The meetings are expected to lay the groundwork for ending a nuclear standoff between the two countries.

The two sides had brief discussion on trade-related matters.

Modi said as the world's largest event on financial technology, the festival was the right forum not only to showcase India's strengths in this fast-growing sector, but also to forge global partnerships for fostering innovation and growth. On trade - on which the Trump administration has adopted a strident position globally - Mr Modi reminded the USA vice-president that American exports to India had risen by 50 per cent in the past two years, with India importing $4 billion of USA oil and gas this year. The trade gap is on course to further reduce this year. "We expressed our readiness to import more oil and gas from USA as a way of expanding our trade", he said.

The meeting, their fourth since Moon took office a year ago, came days after high-level denuclearization negotiations between the United States and the North were abruptly called off last week. He also appreciated the cooperation between the USA and India on counter-terrorism.
