Days after taking over at the President of the United States, President Donald Trump will call Prime Minister Narendra Modi at around 1:00 pm (ET) (11 pm IST) for a brief discussion on strategic ties between two countries  which is expected to last about half hour.

This is going to be the first conversation between both the leaders after Trump’s inauguration on January 20.

The Republican President, who has replaced Barack Obama, has also been vocal when it comes to his ‘stern’ plans to ‘exterminate’ radical Islamic terrorism. The issue of terrorism, primarily cross-border terror, is of an equal concern to India. Thus, it may be discussed during the brief talk between both the leaders.
