In a statement, Pence's office said he encouraged "free, fair, and reciprocal trade with India".

The defence sector was another area of cooperation between the two sides.

Mr Pence also had bilateral discussions with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, affirming their growing relationship and the USA commitment to "free and open South China Sea". He would hold a bilateral meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence which is scheduled at 10:00 AM today.

Stressing that there was some discussion on the issue of terrorism and Pence referred to the coming 10th anniversary of 26/11, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said the Prime Minister reminded him that "in one way or another, all the traces or all the leads in global terror attacks ultimately lead to a single source, a single place of origin". The two also discussed enhancement in defence ties with India having acquired billions of dollars of United States defence platforms, equipment and weaponry in the past decade.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday arrived at Singapore for a two-day visit during which he will attend the East Asia Summit, an ASEAN-India informal meet, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership summit and hold a bilateral meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in Singapore this week for meetings for the ASEAN as well as the East Asian Summit, but perhaps what more people are looking forward to is his appearance at the Singapore Financial Technology (Fintech) Festival, which is now ongoing and will end on November 16th. We have begun importing oil and gas from U.S. worth about Dollars 4 billion this year.

Mr Modi also asked the United States to explore making defence equipment in India not just for its own market but with an eye on regional markets.

"Until we have a plan that is implemented to achieve complete, verifiable, irreversible, denuclearization, we're going to keep the pressure on", he said.

"There was some good understanding of the areas of how we move forward in building cooperation on counter terrorism and both countries recognised that this is a challenge which we have to fight together and to fight along with the rest of the global community", Gokhale said.

Prime Minister Modi said Indians when they come to the United States not only bring their talent and capacity to innovate, capacity to excel but also they are imbued in democratic values.

The prime minister expressed hope that the Donald Trump administration would recognise defence as a new economic opportunity, he said.

Ahead of his visit, the PM said his participation in the ASEAN-India and East Asia summits symbolised India's "continued commitment" to strengthen its engagement with ASEAN members and with the wider Indo-Pacific region.

"Like you, we seek an Indo-Pacific in which all nations, large and small, can prosper and thrive - secure in our sovereignty, confident in our values, and growing stronger together", he said.
