Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has told visiting US President Barack Obama that the two nations are starting a “new journey” of co-operation.

Mr Obama said that the nations had declared a new friendship to take ties to a higher level.

The leaders announced fresh defence and trade initiatives, and committed to more-regular bilateral meetings.

Upon his arrival, the US president traveled to the presidential palace, Rashtrapati Bhavan, for an official welcoming ceremony.

Mr Obama laid a wreath at the Mahatma Gandhi memorial and planted a tree.

At a joint press conference, Mr Modi said the two countries were “starting a new journey” based on “renewed trust and sustained attention”.

Mr Obama is being accompanied by a delegation of US business leaders for the trade talks.

Security is intense in Delhi, with Mr Obama to be the guest of honour at Monday’s Republic Day celebrations.

Thousands of security personnel have been deployed in Delhi, along with some 15,000 cameras.
