Washington: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that India has agreed to partner with the US in its fight against "radical Islamic terrorism."
Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were addressing a small audience at the White House following a bilateral meeting with senior members of their administrations.
Trump said both the US and India have been affected by the "evils of terrorism" and the "radical ideology that drives them."
He said, "We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism."
President Trump also thanked India for purchasing US military equipment.
The US president told Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a meeting with top aides that it "always makes us feel very good" when other countries purchase American-made equipment. He said, "There's nobody makes military equipment like we make military equipment. Nobody even close."
The US State Department on Tuesday approved the sale of a C-17 military transport aircraft to India and is reportedly set to approve a $2 billion sale of US-made unarmed drones.
Trump also touted the relationship between the United States and India as "very, very strong and very, very powerful."
He said the two countries "agree on most things" and jokes that "by the end of the day we'll agree on everything. I have a feeling."
