India Summit: PM Modi calls for greater cooperation with member countries

President Donald Trump registers his surprise as he realizes other leaders, including Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte and Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, are crossing their arms for the traditional "ASEAN handshake" as he participates in the opening ceremony of the ASEAN Summit in Manila, Philippines, on November 13.

India and the United States have unveiled a vision for deeper military cooperation, saying two of the world's great democracies should have the "world's greatest militaries".

The leaders also discussed the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership, the statement said.

Duterte said he would like to further strengthen the Philippines' bilateral relations with India on trade and culture. "We are working together for the interest, for the future of Asia and for the humanity as a whole in the world", PM Modi said.

"I would like to assure you whatever the expectations are of the world, of the U.S. from India, India has always made efforts to fulfil those expectations and we will continue to do so in the future too", he said.

"Vietnam's PM, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc and I held wide ranging deliberations on enhancing India-Vietnam friendship, which can greatly benefit our citizens and region".

"Globalisation is delivering new opportunities - but increasing economic and social inequalities, heightening citizens' anxieties and putting pressure on social cohesion; climate change is exacerbating severe weather events like hurricanes and storms", said Mr. Guterres, adding: "The global community must raise the level of its response to all these complex threats; multilateralism and regional cooperation will be critical to a peaceful and prosperous future".

Modi said he looked forward to hosting the USA delegation at the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit, which will be co-hosted by the two countries. The US has been favouring a larger role for India in the strategically important Indo-Pacific region.

A fair amount of time was also devoted to Afghanistan, and Modi briefed Trump on the recent supply of wheat by India to the war-torn country via the Iranian port of Chabahar.
