Earlier on Friday, PM Modi held his first meeting with US Vice President Kamala Harris, where the latter brought up Pakistan’s role in terrorism and asked Islamabad to take action so it does not impact America and India’s security.

PM Modi and Harris, who has Indian roots, discussed a range of issue, including Indo-US strategic partnership and global issues of common interest, including threats to democracy, Afghanistan and the Indo-Pacific.
