India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump held a bilateral meeting in NY on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, on September 24, 2019.

He also addressed the UN Climate Action Summit in NY, amongst other events.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday that social media has become a powerful instrument of democracy and it can be used as a "weapon" for good governance.

"If you want to invest in start-ups with a huge market, come to India.If you want to invest in one of the world's largest infrastructure ecosystem, come to India", Modi said.

Prime Minister Imran, who has declared himself an ambassador of Kashmiris, spent the second day of his seven-day visit to the United Nations briefing USA lawmakers, scholars, human rights activists and the media on the repercussions of the Indian annexation of the disputed Kashmir valley.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has issued his most direct assertion that Pakistan is willing to go to war with India over the disputed region of Kashmir, which forms a buffer between the two countries. "We are inviting the world to bring this technology to India and do coal gasification", he said. "In India, there's only need, no greed", PM Modi noted. Maybe he is the Father of India'.

"I am thankful to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for supporting our, Turkey is a true friend", PM said while replying to a question asked by a Turkish journalist.

Addressing a Republican political rally in Wisconsin state, Trump had earlier alleged that many countries had been "ripping" America off for years and also said that countries like India have been imposing tremendously high tariffs on American products.

The immediate measures that the USA wants India to take includes doing away with price caps for medical devices including knee caps and stents, lowering import duties on smartphones and some other ICT products, removing restrictions on dairy imports and withdrawing retaliatory tariffs on farm products including apples and almonds.

Their 40-minute discussion largely focussed to the bilateral trade and problems associated with terrorism emanating from Pakistan.

Asked what options are left for him if the worldwide community doesn't respond, Khan said, "What options do we have apart from this?"

Pakistan has two of its own difficulties and challenges, and prime minister knows that. Now they will see that their investment of 70 years is undercut because of (India's) policy change in Kashmir.

The prime minister said that India's claim that this is an internal issue and that the world should stay out of it is "nonsense".

"I have great respect, I have great admiration and I really like him, that's another thing", the president told reporters.

India, he said, blamed Pakistan for terrorism.

"In addition, a concessional Line of Credit of Dollars 150 Million which can be availed by the PSIDS for undertaking solar, renewable energy and climate-related projects based on each country's requirement was announced", said the release issued by the Ministry of External Affairs.
