Indo-US Trade Talks
The US President in his speech at the Motera stadium in the Namaste Trump event on Monday, announced that big ticket military deals including helicopters and other equipment worth over $3 billion will be inked on Tuesday.
These include the supply of 24 MH-60 Romeo helicopters to India at a cost of $2.6 billion. A deal to acquire to supply six AH-64E Apache helicopters to India for $800 million is also on the cards.

President Trump and PM Modi are likely to focus on a number of bilateral and regional issues ranging from trade, investment, defence, security, counter-terrorism, H1-B visa problems, energy security, religious freedom and proposed peace deal with Taliban in Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Modi will play host at a lunch for President Trump in the afternoon, following which President Trump is scheduled to attend events at the US Embassy. These include a roundtable with industry representatives.
In the evening, the US president will attend a banquet hosted by President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. President Trump is scheduled to leave later in the evening on Tuesday.
