Therefore, whilst Trump and Modi met in the Oval Office to talk about a variety of issues, Twitter was busy analyzing Modi's hugs, and whether or not they were genuine, or hugs that were given just to mess with the president.

During the delegation-level meeting, the two leaders touched upon various topics ranging from purchase of military equipment to the bilateral relations between the two nations. The leaders did not take questions from the media afterwards.

"The United States and India are committed to realising commercial civil nuclear cooperation, in particular through a contract for six Westinghouse Electric AP-1000 nuclear reactors to be built in Andhra Pradesh, India", the White House said in a statement". "Makes us feel very good and there's no one who makes military equip [ment] like us".

Following the meeting, Modi said the talks with Trump had been very successful, describing them as "fruitful", Reuters reported, with the prime minister also confirming he had invited Trump to visit India.

Modi highlighted his government's economic reforms and the ease of doing business in the country.

Modi was the United States is a "primary partner" for India's transformation. "I guess it's worked very well in both cases", Trump said.

He went to list the reasons: the talks were based on mutual trust, both countries share the same values, fears and because both India and the United States are prime engines of "global growth".

Attempts by India to become a USA ally to counter China will not be in its interests and could lead to catastrophic results, a state-run Chinese daily said.

The United States also has offered to sell a naval variant of the Predator drone made by U.S. defense contractor General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, the White House said in a statement, a deal that would be worth more than $2 billion.

Not many people know it, but both American and the Indian constitutions begin with the same three very lovely words: We the people.

He said the two countries have also chose to expand their maritime security cooperation.

"I deeply appreciate your strong commitment to the enhancement of our bilateral relations", Mr Modi told him. The US President said he was "pleased" to learn about an "an Indian airline's recent order of 100 new American planes, which will support thousands of American jobs".

Hinting that meeting with Modi was not much of a priority for Trump, Tewari said that out of the nine tweets by the US President today, not one was on his meeting with Modi.

When Modi arrived at the White House, he was greeted not just by Trump but also Melania, as is the usual United States tradition. U.S.is seeking stronger Indian protection of intellectual property rights, reductions in tariffs and narrowing of the $30 billion trade deficit. Apple chief Tim Cook, Google CEO Sunder Pichai, Cisco head John Chambers and Amazon's Jeff Bezos were among the entrepreneurs at the meeting.

Noting the importance of the upcoming MALABAR naval exercise (involving the US, Japan and India), the leaders determined to expand their engagements on shared maritime objectives and to explore new exercises.
