PM Modi is often seen hugging various heads of state and VIPs during the events.
Earlier, Trump had lashed out at Pakistan, accusing it of “housing the very terrorists that we are fighting”.
Trump’s criticism of Pakistan came after Modi’s US visit in June. The Prime Minister was seen hugging Trump who described Modi as a “true friend”.
