On October 27, 2020, the United States and India signed the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA), which strengthens information exchange and continued defense cooperation to counter China`s military build-up in the region.  India has carried out reforms at the United Nations and the World Trade Organization with mixed results. India`s bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council is currently supported by several countries, including Russia, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Brazil, African Union countries, the United States (but not China). In 2005, the United States signed a nuclear cooperation agreement with India, although the latter is not included in the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The United States agreed that India`s nuclear non-proliferation record was an exception and convinced other members of the Nuclear Suppliers Group to sign similar agreements with India. The two countries negotiated a trade package aimed at solving the problems and boosting mutual trade. The “Mini” trade deal, concluded and ready to be signed, remains stalled only because of this condition, several sources told ThePrint. Swadeshi Jagran, who is close to the RSS, has not spoken out in favour of multilateral trade agreements. Instead, it was said that India should focus on strengthening the Atmanirbhar India Planke. Trump also visited Agra, Uttar Pradesh and the Taj Mahal on the same day.  In Agra, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath welcomed the President and the First Lady.
There were 3000 cultural artists who presented art, culture and music from different regions.  However, political commentators note that Trump`s first official visit to India was overshadowed by riots in northeast Delhi in 2020.  India, which has not signed a trade agreement since 2012, will soon restart discussions on a possible free trade agreement (FTA) with the European Union and the United States. Even when Narendra Modi`s government left the Regional Economic Partnership (RCEP), it is interested in making trade deals with other economic blocs, a high-level source said, adding that India could gain significantly in the face of growing anti-China sentiment in many parts of the world. Here`s what didn`t happen: The U.S. and India didn`t strike a trade deal, although there was repeated evidence that both sides were fighting to make the deal. . . .
