Donald Trump calls PM Modi, says India a true friend
US President Donald Trump phoned Prime Minister Narendra Modi.The Trump White House chose to call India— Trump's fifth to world leaders — after the new President had conversations with leaders of Washington's two immediate neighbors, Canada and Mexico and with leaders of Israel and Egypt.The fact that Trump chose to call New Delhi ahead of Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo or any of the European capitals points to the non-controversial yet weighty nature of US ties with India, which have been based on a bipartisan consensus in both countries.The call ostensibly aimed at ensuring continuity, and possibly enhancement, of close ties between the two countries.
