India to restrict flights to China, Malaysia

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (Reuters) – Indian travel restrictions on the United States are likely to remain in place on Monday for most international passengers, with a number of major airlines suspending flights and limiting the number of people they can carry.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet President Donald Trump in New York on Monday, where they will discuss a wide range of economic and security issues, the White House said in a statement.

Airlines are also planning to resume scheduled flights from some US cities including Miami, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Cincinnati, the statement said.

The United States and India are the world’s two largest trading partners and are expected to have a formal deal in place in early 2019 to trade $400 billion worth of goods and services annually.

However, Modi’s visit is expected to be overshadowed by the deadly attack in India’s capital, New Delhi, that killed nearly 30 people and injured more than 300.

The two countries have already had a number to discuss with the Trump administration.

Modi is due to meet with President Trump on Sunday at the White Senate, where the two leaders will discuss trade and economic issues.

The visit of Modi to the United Kingdom is expected after Trump travels to Washington, D.C. and will be followed by a visit by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence to the Vatican in the coming days.
