US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Indian PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday. This is first high profile consultation between India and US after Modi 2.0 has taken over. There is a change in External Affairs Ministry also with S Jaishankar replacing Sushma Swaraj. So Pompeo is looking to strike a rapport with him before trying to resolve several outstanding issues between the two countries. 

Some of the big issues likely to feature are India's purchase of S-400 missile defence systems from Russia, terrorism, H1B visas, trade and the situation arising out of US sanctions on buying oil from Iran.

This trip is expected to lay the ground for Modi-Trump summit level talks on the sidelines of the G20 summit on June 28-29. Pompeo is on India visit from 25-27.

Later, Pompeo met Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar

Earlier in the day, US Secretary of State had a meeting with NSA Ajit Doval over several security-related issues in the neighbourhood and globally. 

The top US diplomat will be meeting business leaders also in the evening where he will deliver a policy speech.
