WASHINGTON: The US has cleared the sale of 22 Guardian drones to India, government sources said on Thursday, a deal being termed as a "game changer" for bilateral ties ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's maiden visit to Washington for his meeting with President Donald Trump.

According to the informed government sources, the decision was communicated to the Indian government and the manufacturer by the State Department on Wednesday.

The deal is estimated to be worth $2-3 billion.

"This is the first very significant sign of the Trump administration being more result oriented in its relationship with India compared to Obama administration," a source told PTI. TOI
