US Prez praises Modi at the Apec summit

Trump noted that countries outside of APEC were making great strides in this new chapter for the Indo-Pacific. He also expressed his delight on Jeakson Singh's first ever goal for the country in a FIFA World Cup and termed it as one of the biggest reasons to celebrate for fans across the country. It is a sovereign democracy, as well as - think of this - over 1 billion people.

Modi will travel to the Philippines on Sunday to attend the India-ASEAN and East Asia Summits.

US President Donald Trump on Friday praised India's "astounding" growth after it opened its economy and also lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he has been working successfully to bring the vast country and its people together. "It's the largest democracy in the world", Trump said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is a self-proclaimed sports enthusiast was also present at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi during the inauguration ceremony of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup.

He added that the USA was ready to make a bilateral deal with any country in the Indo-Pacific region, but only on the basis of "mutual respect and mutual benefit". Redressing the balance of trade between Asia and the United States is at the centre of Trump's "America First" policy he says will protect U.S. workers. The bipartisan group of Congressional leaders, reconciling the differences between the House and Senate versions of the 2018 National defence Authorisation Act (NDAA), also urged the Department of Defence to closely monitor U.S. security assistance to Pakistan and ensure that the country does not use it to support terrorist groups. Both Modi and Trump might have an interaction during their meeting at the East Asia Summit.

Intellectual property has been a long-standing dispute between the United States and Chinese companies as the latter is accused of display of total disregard for the rights granted to the creators.
