Mr Modi said he and Mr Trump had agreed to improve co-operation on fighting terrorism.

"I'm sure that convergence between my vision for a new India and President Trump's vision for "Making America Great Again" will add a new dimension to our cooperation", added Modi, in reference to Trump's signature campaign slogan.

Regarding Trump's "Make America great Again" campaign slogan, Modi stressed that his agenda for India was different, but added that the convergence of the U.S. president's campaign with his vision of "New India" will cater to new dimensions in cooperation.

"Both our nations have been struck by the evils of terrorism and we are both determined to destroy terrorist organisations and the radical ideology that drives them", Trump said.

US President with First Lady Melania Trump welcomed Indian PM at the Whitehouse on Monday afternoon as the two leaders embraced each other.

"I am thrilled to salute you, Prime Minister Modi, and the Indian people for all you are accomplishing together".

He said the "grand and warm welcome" extended to Modi by the White House and the US President speaks for the rising importance of India in the global economic and geo-political order. "We will crush radical Islamic psychological oppression".

Trump has decried India's large trade surplus with the United States, and he accused India of seeking to profit from the Paris climate agreement when he announced he was withdrawing from the accord this month.

Modi described his talks with Trump as "extremely important", hailing a bilateral relationship that is based on mutual trust and shared values. "The Indian diaspora here is a living link and bridge between the two countries", Modi said.

"It is important that barriers be removed to the export of USA goods into your markets and that we reduce our trade deficit with your country", Trump said.

Modi met Trump after meetings Sunday with business leaders including Apple Inc. Trump gave the Prime Minister a guided tour of President's residence quarters in White House including the Lincoln bedroom and showed him a copy of Lincoln's famous Gettysburg address and the desk on which he wrote it. "We held extensive discussions on opportunities in India", Modi tweeted later.

In a letter to the president, lawmakers from the Republican and Democratic parties had argued that a number of United States goods were affected as India continues to be a hard place for American companies to do business. The highlight of this farewell scene was however the hug between President Trump and the Indian PM.

He said that when then US President Barack Obama came to attend the 2015 Republic Day parade in New Delhi as the chief guest, each of the three services giving the guard of honour was commanded by a woman.
