"I am pleased to see US and Indian leadership work together to make progress on concrete deliverables during these first 100 days," said Senator Mark Warner, co-chair of the bipartisan Senate India Caucus.

"By demonstrating that we can move beyond talk and actually get things done, we can provide new energy and important momentum to set the stage for Prime Minister Modi's visit to the US later this month," Warner said.

Early this week, the White House announced that President, Barack Obama would meet Prime Minister Modi on 29th and 30th September.

In May, Warner had laid out the ‘First 100 days’ plan prior to the beginning of the new Modi government. It included recommendations for both US and Indian governments.

In a statement the Senator said he is pleased that both governments have made progress on seven of his recommended priorities to continue to improve and energize the bilateral relationship.

This includes Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, announcing that Frank Kendall, Under Secretary for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics would lead the US side of the Defense Trade and Technology Initiative.

India is yet to announce his counterpart.
