One day before Trump's impeachment, India and US agreed on the following
- Indian Prime Minister
Narendra Modiwas on a week-long visit to the US when the news of President Donald Trump’s impeachment vote hit the stands.
- Amidst the domestic crises in both countries, they were able to sign off on multiple landmark agreements during the 2+2 dialogue.
- The agreements include cooperation across defence, space, and environment.
A day later on December 18, the House of Representatives voted to push Trump out of office charging him with ‘abuse of power’. And, he was impeached with more votes against him than any other US President. Now, it’s up to the Senate to approve his removal from office.
Even though over 700 historians ‘strongly’ endorse Trump’s impeachment, the Trump-Modi era was one of success for India, according to experts. Amidst domestic crisis in their respective countries — Trump’s call for impeachment and nation-wide protests in India over the Citizenship Act — the administrations were able to bolster bilateral ties.
These are the details of some of the top agreements between the Trump and Modi administration:
