Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump late on Monday discussed over phone the prospects for increasing cooperation in Afghanistan, the India-US strategic partnership, trade deficit, cooperation in defence and security issues, according to statements from the two countries.

The call placed by Modi was one of the several that Trump received or made on the occasion of the start of the New Year, according to a statement from the White House.

The call to Trump follows one between Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin also on Monday and comes after the seeming belittling by the US President of India’s reconstruction efforts in war-torn Afghanistan. It also follows reports that the Trump administration has ordered the US military to start withdrawing roughly 7,000 troops from Afghanistan in what is being seen as “an abrupt shift” in the 17-year-old war there.
