Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump are meeting for the first time in Washington.

Immigration, India’s NSG membership, India-US bilateral relations and other shared concerns on domestic and regional fronts continue to have an impact on the countries’  relations. How both Modi and Trump sail through will be keenly watched not only in India, but also by other countries in South Asia, and the extended South East Asian region.
