Modi could discuss visa issue with Trump: trade official

Reuters  |  NEW DELHI 

(Reuters) - could take up the issue of visas for skilled workers when Prime Minister Modi meets U.S. President Donald Trump next week, top trade ministry official said on Tuesday.

"H-1B issue will be one of the issues on the table during PM's visit," Trade Secretary Rita Teaotia said, referring to Trump's order for a review of high-skilled programme that affects India's $150-billion information technology sector.

Modi is due to meet Trump in Washington on June 26, a meeting that is expected to lay the ground for a further expansion in ties, allaying some of the anxiety that had crept in about a drift in relations.
