ANI  |  New York [U.S.A.] 

External Affairs Minister will take part in a meeting, chaired by United States President Donald Trump, to discuss terrorism, on the sidelines of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Apart from terrorism, EAM Swaraj will also take up the issues of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar, reforms in the U.N., climate change, and other peace-keeping issues in the United Nation General Assembly.

Earlier during Prime Minister Modi's visit to the U.S. in June this year, he and Trump agreed to work together to resolve the increasing threat of terror.

"Both and the U.S.A. are global engines of growth. Eliminating is among the topmost priorities for us," Prime Minister Modi said, in a joint press statement at Rose Garden, at DC.

The Indian foreign minister will arrive in New York on September 17 for seven days of back-to-back engagements centring around the U.N. General Assembly, including her first meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Conclusively, will have several bilateral meetings and multilateral commitments, apart from speaking at the U.N. general debate on September 23.
