Negotiations are on for a trade deal with the US even as expectations of an agreement being signed earlier this week during the meetings between Narendra Modi and Donald Trump got scuppered, with a common ground proving elusive.

“Commerce minister Piyush Goyal is in the US till this weekend and he is holding talks. It is not yet over yet. Moreover, there is no deadline to meet. Every such meeting and its resumption is an indication of the narrowing of differences,” commerce ministry officials said.

The president of US-India Business Council Nisha Biswal tweeted: “US and Indian negotiators still not in agreement on a mini deal on trade but will continue to talk and work through issues.”
