The U.S. President Barack Obama spoke by phone on Wednesday with Prime Minister (PM) of India Narendra Modi.

This was supposed to be Obama’s final official interaction with Modi, as Donald Trump will assume the office of the U.S. President on Friday, January 20.

According to a White House communique, Obama thanked Modi for his partnership and joint efforts of cooperation including defense, civil nuclear energy, and enhanced people-to-people ties.

Recalling his visit as Chief Guest at India’s Republic Day celebrations in 2015, President Obama wished Modi warm congratulations ahead of India’s upcoming 68th Republic Day anniversary on January 26.

Both leaders discussed the progress they have made on shared economic and security priorities, including recognition of India as a Major Defense Partner of the United States and addressing the global challenge of climate change.
