US vice-president Mike Pence on Tuesday hailed the first meeting between US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “historic and productive”.

He said Trump recognised US ties with India as “one of the most important strategic relationships in the 21st century.”

Addressing the US Indian Business Council a day after Trump’s first meeting with Modi in Washington, Pence stressed that India must continue to enact economic reforms to ensure the bilateral trade relationship was reciprocal.
