US President Donald Trump told External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, “I love India, give my regards to my friend PM (Narendra) Modi,” as they exchanged pleasantries during a high-level event on counter-narcotics at the United Nations in New York on Monday.
As Trump left the podium at the conclusion of the event hosted by him at the United Nations, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warmly hugged Swaraj and introduced her to the president.
When Swaraj told the US president that she has brought greetings from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Trump responded: "I love India, give my regards to my friend PM Modi,” An Indian diplomatic source told PTI.
