NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday told a US Senator, who called on him,  that he desired to further deepen and expand the strategic ties between the two nations to a new level.

Modi was responding to US Senator John McCain’s message that there were high expectations in the US about “a new momentum” in India’s economic growth and all-round progress under the new government.

Modi also observed that the success of democratic countries and their cooperation would “advance peace, stability and prosperity” in the world and hoped for “a forward looking, result-oriented visit” of his to the US in September this year “to take the relationship to a new level.”

The two leaders also discussed the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan. During the conversation, Modi expressed concern over the increased threat of terrorism across the world and reiterated that the fight against terror should be a global priority for humanitarian forces.
