"The two discussed opportunities to strengthen the partnership between the United States and India in broad areas such as the economy and defense," the release stated.

South and Central Asia cover many areas of mutual interest to both India and the US including Pakistan and Afghanistan, and it could not be immediately confirmed if the leaders discussed the drawdown of US troops in Afghanistan.

The White House also announced that Donald Trump will host Nahendra Modi in Washington, DC this year taker in 2017.

"Trump looked forward to hosting Prime Minister Modi in the United States later this year," the release stated on Tuesday. "[Trump] emphasized that the United States considers India a true friend and partner in addressing challenges around the world."

The US statement contained no details and it was not known if trade in services, read H-1B, came up during their phone call, as many had expected, since it being the one issue that had agitated New Delhi the most about Trump.
