President Donald Trump said Monday that India has agreed to partner with the U.S. in its fight against “radical Islamic terrorism.”
Trump spoke alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the White House.
Trump said both the U.S. and India have been affected by the “evils of terrorism” and the “radical ideology that drives them.”
He added: “We will destroy radical Islamic terrorism.”
The two leaders addressed a small audience at the White House following a bilateral meeting with senior members of their administrations.
Modi is the first world leader to be hosted for a White House dinner since Trump took office.
