US President Donald Trump said Saturday he was looking forward to meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi, adding that a number of strategic issues was on agenda.
Trump is set to meet Modi on Monday. Earlier in the day, a senior White House official said the two politicians would focus on the issue of counterterrorism.
"Look forward to welcoming India's PM Modi to @WhiteHouse on Monday.
Important strategic issues to discuss with a true friend!" Trump said, according to US President's Twitter account.
Earlier this week, Indian Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Gopal Baglay said Modi would discuss with the US leader economic and trade cooperation between the two countries.
Trump invited the Indian prime minister to visit Washington during a phone call in January, shortly after the US leader's inauguration.
