New Delhi: India and the US on Friday held official talks to resolve their trade differences, with both sides keen to tackle all issues on the table in a constructive manner.
The US delegation, led by Assistant US Trade Representative for South and Central Asia Christopher Wilson and Deputy Assistant Brendan Lynch, on Thursday held informal talks with Indian officials.
The Indian side – comprising officers from both the External Affairs and Commerce Ministries – was led by an Additional Secretary level officer from the Ministry of Commerce. The meeting comes as a follow-up to the meeting in Osaka, Japan, last month between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump where both the sides agreed to resolve all issues including trade and 5G. “Our approach is to engage with them very constructively in a very positive manner,” said External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Thursday “It is important to keep in mind when we engage on this issue that the trajectory of the relationship remains positive. And we have to keep in mind the bigger picture, and within that big picture we have to address all the issues.” (IANS)
