Following U.S. President Donald Trump's historic and pompous two-day visit to India, the two countries late Tuesday declared they were "comprehensive global strategic partners" in a joint statement.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
Trump concluded his first official visit to India without taking a firm stance on sensitive issues such as The Citizenship Amendment Act, which has tormented the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for months.
During the U.S. president's 36-hour visit, 10 people died in the Indian capital of New Delhi in clashes over the controversial law, which Muslims consider discriminatory.
Trump and Modi said their countries will deepen security cooperation especially in maritime and space domains, as well as take energy partnership to new levels, according to a statement.
Trump reaffirmed his pledge to support the transfer to India advanced U.S. military technology to help foster a "rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific."
The U.S. has long viewed India as a Major Defense Partner.
Modi and Trump have stressed the importance of bilateral trade and investment, and the need for long-term trade stability at a time when negotiations for a phase one trade deal continues with tariff bumps in the road.
