Our close historical and friendly ties have picked up momentum after Prime Minister Antonio Costa's visit to India in January 2017, Modi told the media ahead of his planned departure.

Defence expert Praful Bakshi on Saturday said the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Donald Trump would be of great significance.

"We are trying to move it to the top of the agenda as a deliverable, this is something that can happen before all the other items", said one official tracking the progress of the drone discussions in the run-up to the visit. It will be a four day trip, where Modi will stop at the US for two days and meet the US President Donald Trump for the first time after he assumes office. How fitting it is that just one week after Prime Minister Modi concludes his latest consultations in Washington he will land in Tel Aviv-the first visit by an Indian head of government to Israel.

"India will seek to convey that projects under "Make in India" will not automatically result in job losses in the U.S.", said Sanjay Pulipaka, a fellow at the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations, a New Delhi-based think tank. Notably, this will be the first dinner by the Trump administration for a visiting foreign leader. "I look forward to building a forward looking vision for our partnership with the new Administration in the United States under President Trump".

The agreements signed included cooperation in outer space, double taxation avoidance, nano technology, improving cultural ties, youth and sports, higher education and scientific research, and Portugal-India business hub and Indian Chamber of Commerce. "General Atomics Aeronautical Systems is standing by to support the United States and Indian governments throughout this process".
