PM Narendra Modi arrives in the Netherlands after U.S. visit

After his talks with Rutte and other government ministers, Modi was meeting Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima at their home outside The Hague and later was heading to a gathering of members of the Indian community in The Hague.

"Whether you're in Silicon Valley or Bangalore, these are staffed with incredible people and talented workforces, and this collaboration will also help further assist the prime minister in achieving and realizing his visions for programs such as Digital India and the Smart Cities Initiative, efforts the USA government should continue to robustly support with its expertise and resources", Holding said.

The visiting Prime Minister will later on hold one-on-one-meeting with Trump followed with delegation level talks.

Both the leaders discussed a range of issues including terrorism, defence and trade. "But in April, Trump fired a warning shot by announcing a review of the H-1B visa program under which up to 65,000 skilled workers - many of them computer engineers from India - enter the US annually", the article said.

LA Clippers agree to trade Chris Paul to Houston Rockets
While Paul and Harden are certainly an impressive duo, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has his sights set on something bigger. Redick is reportedly out the door , and if the Clippers don't re-sign Blake Griffin , they will suddenly be very bad.

India, US call on Pakistan to stop its soil from being used as terror launch pads, said Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar after Modi-Trump meeting at the White House.

"We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism", he said. "Economically, India's doing very well", he said. "A lot of the discussions also related to what was happening in Afghanistan", he said.

On the other hand, Indo-US relations took an entirely different turn allowing the ties between the two countries to strengthen a bit more. Chinese state daily Global Times today reported Chinese experts as saying, "China welcomes the development of relations between India and the USA, as the leaders from the two countries met on Monday, saying relations have "never been better'". Mutual economic investment, collaboration on renewable energy and climate change initiatives have been regarded areas of improvement, with the Obama administration inheriting a relationship that moved away from Cold War tensions under Clinton and Bush. This is a special gesture only accorded to the Pope or the USA president, Carmon said. But the fact remains that both leaders like one-way interactions with the media. India is the fastest growing economy in the world Trump said and added, "We hope we will be catching up you very soon".
