During the meeting between India and US’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has vowed to reduce the trade tension between the two countries.
In the meeting, Pompeo has mentioned reducing the trade tensions and tariffs, but had not really mentioned any specific details. This is after the trade war that occurred between the two countries (see articles Trade War Part Three for more). India’s foreign minister, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has stated that since they are two of the biggest trade partners, disputes are inevitable.

What do you think? Will India bend to USA’s will so easily? Or will they reach a mutual agreement? Stay tuned for more…
