American President Donald Trump in a tweet said,“I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further. This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!”.
This tweet has come just a day before the G20 Summit in Japan, where Mr. Trump and Mr. Modi are due to meet. US President also said he looks forward to speaking with Modi about the recent increase in tariffs against the United States.
US is demanding India a greater market access through a cut in import duties for its agriculture goods, dairy products, medical devices, IT and communication items. While India resented and said that it would be difficult for them to cut duties on IT products.
While India also imposed retaliatory tariffs on the US after withdrawal of key trade privileges. The increased tariffs will lead to an increase in the prices of almonds, walnuts and apples among other products from US.
