Ahead of meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the G20 Summit, US President Donald Trump has hit out at the Modi government and said that India’s tariffs on US products is “unacceptable” and they must be withdrawn, reported the India Today.

Significant tension has grown between India and the US after Trump announced end of preferential trade with India and the Modi government hit back with retaliatory tariffs on 25 US products.

On Thursday morning, as Trump reached Japan for the G20 Summit, where he will be meeting PM Modi, the US President tweeted: “I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further. This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!”
