Netherlands backs India's UNSC and NSG bids after Modi's India Tv

PM Modi's remarks were aimed at putting across an India in front of President Trump that was ready, in all manners, to come into phase with the Trump administration's goals.


Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, whom PM Modi met yesterday in Netherlands during his three-nation tour, had earlier responded to Modi's Dutch tweet in Hindi.


The report said Pakistan was feeling anxious over the statement since the Trump administration, which took over in January, is in the final phase of chalking out its South Asia policy and the statement made it think that the USA could be looking to get closer to India's position on "alleged" cross-border attacks.

Describing both nations as "global engines of growth", the Prime Minister said trade, commerce and investment were key areas of mutual co-operation.


Salahuddin in September vowed to block any peaceful resolution to the Kashmir conflict, officials said, threatened to train more suicide bombers, and turn the disputed valley "into a graveyard for Indian forces". "And that is now exactly what you have - a true friend".


"It is important that barriers be removed to the export of USA goods and that we reduce our trade deficit with your country", Trump said. The statement said that the two countries look forward to working together on advanced defence equipment and technology "at a level commensurate with that of the closest allies and partners of the United States". And it appears Modi and Trump put the touchy subject aside for their first meeting.
