Washington: The Trump administration has exuded confidence that the relationship between India and the US will see a very positive trajectory, hours after Narendra Modi was sworn in as the Prime Minister for the second term.

Modi on Thursday took oath of office, steering a 58-member ministry. He led his BJP towards a resounding victory, crossing the 300 mark for 542 Lok Sabha seats.

“This is really a resilient partnership. It enjoys bipartisan support. It has the structures and it has the strategic commitment in place to take advantage of our leader’s vision. I anticipate a very positive trajectory moving forward,” a senior State Department Official said on Thursday.

As was evident in the tweets, statements and phone calls from the US President, Vice President and Secretary of State after the Indian elections, the US looks forward to working with Prime Minister Modi and his government in the second term, the official said.

“We do expect that our strategic partnership will continue to flourish under his leadership,” the official added.

Recalling Modi’s 2017 visit to the US, the official said that Trump and the Indian prime minister enjoyed a warm relationship and personal chemistry.

“You saw that when the prime minister was here in June of 2017. That means that the sort of the geopolitical compulsion to this relationship is matched by a personal leadership commitment to advance relations,” the official said.

According to the official, Trump and Modi will meet in Japan on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit next month in Osaka, Japan. A trilateral meeting involving the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had been planned, the official said.
