Washington, Nov 14 (IBNS): Celebrating Diwali in the White House, US President Donald Trump described India as a 'very good negotiator'.

Trump said he is 'grateful' for his friendship with Indian PM Narendra Modi.

"The United States has deep ties to the nation of India, and I am grateful for my friendship with Prime Minister Modi.  We’re trying very hard to make better trade deals with India, but they’re very good traders," Trump said.

"They’re very good negotiators, you would say, right?  The best.  So we’re working, and it’s moving along," he said.

Appreciating the relationship between India and the US, Trump said: "India is the world’s largest democracy, and the relationship between our two countries can act as a bulwark for freedom, prosperity, and peace."

Speaking on the Diwali celebrations, Modi said: "As we light the Diya in the White House, and we join in the fellowship with all of those who light lamps in their own homes, cities, and places of worship.  America is a land of faith, and we are truly fortunate to have these wonderful traditions woven into the tapestry of our national life.  And that is true."
