  • This assertion of President Donald Trump overwhelmed Pakistan

During President Donald Trump's visit, India and the United States on Tuesday finalised defence deals under which 30 military helicopters will be procured from two American defence majors for the Indian armed forces.

At Wednesday's news conference, he said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "a great gentleman, a great leader", and India is an "incredible country".

"With a rising economy and aspiration of 1.3 billion people, India has emerged as a key and strategic partner for the U.S. even as the U.S. remains the most important and promising destination for Indian export of goods and services".

In a tweet, his daughter Ivanka said that, Trump announced that US International Development Finance Corporation "will establish a permanent presence in India to strengthen our economic ties, improve development plus further women's economic empowerment through WGDP (Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative)!"

Bilateral trade between the two countries totalled $142.6bn (£110.3bn) in 2018.

Correspondents say the timing of the unrest is an embarrassment to Mr Modi and the violence has taken the spotlight away from Mr Trump's visit. Importantly, his visit has provided an opportunity to showcase India's rich culture and tradition to a powerful leader, and that the country has the puissance to host such larger than life events that reach out to other nations across the globe. We " ll have it. I don " t know if it'll be done before the election, but we " ll have a very big deal with India, ' Trump said ahead of his visit. "Thank you India!" said White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham. Rampaging mobs in the north-eastern parts of New Delhi were attacking Muslims on the streets, vandalising their shops and setting vehicles and homes on fire, even as law enforcement officials appeared to be standing by mutely, perhaps outnumbered, watching the spectacle unfold.

Asked about the violence, he told reporters that the incident was "up to India" to handle. While the USA side complains that India never closes the last mile problems, Indian officials say the moment they come to closing the last mile distance, more demands are made by the US.

The only area where the full potential for bilateral cooperation may not have been realised is on trade.

"That is a statement coming from the Prime Minister" and that carries a lot of value and weight, Panagariya said adding that Modi does not talk loosely and when he says that there will be a trade deal going forward, "I feel there is some substance to that".

Putting the trade deal question in perspective, Alyssa Ayress, Senior Fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations, said that ultimately more economic openness would be to the benefit of not only India's trading partners but itself.
