Trump, Modi call North Korea’s ‘grave threat’ to peace
US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes a “grave threat” to global peace, the White House said in a statement after a meeting of the two leaders on Monday.
Trump and Modi pledged to work together to counter North Korea’s “weapons of mass destruction” programs and vowed to hold “all parties” that support these programs accountable, the White House statement said.
India’s leader is in the US for his first meeting with President Donald Trump, seeking to build on growing ties between the world’s two largest democracies and move beyond disagreements over climate change.
Relations between New Delhi and Washington warmed under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama as India sought greater foreign investment and trade ties with Western nations.
