PM leaves for Netherlands after concluding US trip

Washington : Prime Minister Narendra Modi today left for Netherlands, the final leg of his three-nation tour, after concluding his visit to the US.
In the US, Modi held talks with President Donald Trump today during which the two leaders vowed to strengthen co-operation on terror. India and the US also urged Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch cross-border terror strikes.

"Wrapping up a historic visit, setting a new milestone in #IndiaUS relationship. Prime Minister Modi departs for Netherlands, last leg of his three-nation tour," Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted.

In Netherlands, Modi will have an official meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, with whom he will have a discussion on global issues including counter-terrorism and climate change.

He will meet with CEOs of Dutch companies and "will encourage them to join the Indian growth story."
"I will also call on King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and meet Queen Maxima," he had said in a Facebook post before leaving on his three-nation trip.

Prime Minister Modi will also address the Indian diaspora in the country.
