PM Modi, Trump call North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear programs a grave threat to peace: White House

The White House said in a statement that PM Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump said North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programs was a grave threat to peace.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump called North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programs a “grave threat” to global peace, the White House said in a statement after a meeting of the two leaders on Monday.Trump and Modi pledged to work together to counter North Korea’s “weapons of mass destruction” programs and vowed to hold “all parties” that support these programs accountable, the White House statement said.

In a joint press conference, Trump had earlier thanked India for joining the US in “applying new sanctions against the North Korean regime.”

“The North Korean regime is causing tremendous problems and is something that has to be dealt with, and probably dealt with rapidly,” Trump said.

Trump and Modi, who met face-to-face for the first time on Monday, had a one-on-one interaction and delegation-level talks before sitting down for a working dinner. The two leaders discussed bilateral trade, peace in Afghanistan, and India’s concerns about Pakistan-based terrorist outfits.
