Speaking at an event, Commerce and
Industry Minister Piyush Goyal said that India and the US are in talks for
several months trying to find solutions for many issues.
He said the announcement of any trade deal
would be decided when Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets President Donald Trump
“We are in continuous dialogue with the US
over the last several months on many issues. We have an open mind and are
looking at several sectors,” he said at an event. “We are looking at an early
resolution of many issues... Whether a deal will be announced or not, that is
up to the PM and the President to decide.”
Modi will visit the US from September
21-27, during which he would address the annual UN General Assembly session and
have a series of bilateral and multilateral engagements in New York.
Trump will attend Modi’s Houston rally for
Indian Americans later this week.
