US President Donald Trump is likely to visit India between February 24 and 26, The Times of India has reported.
The report adds that India and the US are likely to sign the much-awaited trade deal, set to be finalised soon, during this Trump visit. Negotiations for this deal have been going on for months.
The dates of the visit, which would be Trump’s first as the US President, has not been officially announced yet.The visit comes at a time when Trump is facing impeachment proceedings in the US Senate (Upper House) and months ahead of him starting his re-election campaign. The presidential election in the US will happen in November.
The report suggests that Trump’s visit would be used by both sides to further develop strategic and economic relations. It was reported earlier that Trump might visit India in February.
However, Trump turned down the invitation citing scheduling constraints and the dates clashing with the annual State of the Union address.
