Washington, Apr 2: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday met his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau and discussed bilateral ties, their first meeting after the latter swept to power last year.

Modi and Trudeau met here on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit.

“Engagements on Day 2 begin with a bilateral with PM Justin Trudeau,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

“Canadian connect…today’s meetings commence with an interaction with Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau. Both PMs discuss India-Canada relations,” a PMO tweet said.

Last year, Prime Minister Modi had visited Canada when he held extensive talks with the then Canadian Premier Stephen Harper.

Canada had agreed to supply 3,000 metric tonnes of uranium to energy-hungry India under a USD 254 million five-year deal to power Indian reactors.
