New Delhi: Sushma Swaraj, the External Affairs Minister met the President of the United States, Donald Trump today during a high-level even on countering drug trafficking hosted by the American leader at the United Nations.
As the POTUS left the stage at the conclusion of the event, Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the UN warmly hugged Ms Swaraj and introduced her to the president.
The External Affairs Minister told the US president that she has brought greetings from PM Modi, to which Mr Trump responded, "I love India, give my regards to my friend PM Modi," news agency PTI were told by Indian diplomatic sources.
The EAM attended the Global Call to Action on the World Drug Problem, chaired by President Trump as the high-level week of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly began in New York.
In June last year, Mr Trump hosted PM Modi at the White House during his visit to the US. The White House said it was the "first dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House under this (President Trump's) administration" and that it was "seeking to roll out the red carpet".
The Indian PM had reciprocated warmly. "When he (President Trump) came to India in 2014... he was full of very warm remarks and observations about me, I still remember them," he told reporters at the White House.
PM Modi was described as a "true friend" by Donald Trump and the two leaders have developed a warm rapport in the past year, also communicating on phone and on Twitter.
PM Modi and Mr Trump last met at the ASEAN summit in Philippines in November.
