WASHINGTON - For the first time in history US and Indian militaries will hold triservice level military drills called Tiger Triumph in November. These will be first drills for the two countries which will include three branches of their armed forces.
While previously both countries engaged in bilateral war games, India has previously conducted full-scale triservice military exercises only with Russia. Now, the army, the navy, and the air forces of India and the US will act simultaneously [image: An Indian soldier stands guard in front of the first of the six C-130J Super Hercules, a US military aircraft manufactured by Lockheed Martin.

The head of the Indian government has a wide range of issues to discuss with American officials during his visit. The list includes trade, escalating tensions in Kashmir, relations with Pakistan and economic cooperation with Washington.
Trump previously met with Pakistani PM Imran Khan and held talks over Kashmir which New Delhi and Islamabad both claim as their territory.
