President Donald Trump awarded PM Narendra Modi with the Legion of Merit, one of America's highest military awards, for his "leadership in raising bilateral strategic partnerships and accelerating India's emergence as a global power."

Modi thanked Trump for the honour, and the award appreciated India's efforts and the United States to strengthen their relations. "I am profoundly proud to have US President Donald Trump awarded the Legion of Merit. "It acknowledges the efforts of the people of India and the US to improve bilateral ties, reflected in the bipartisan consensus on the Indo-US strategic partnership in both countries," Modi tweeted on Tuesday.

The 21st century, he said, posed both unparalleled obstacles and possibilities. "The relationship between India and the US can leverage the vast potential of the unique strengths of our people to provide global leadership for the benefit of humanity as a whole," Modi said in another tweet.

"On behalf of India's 1.3 billion people, I reiterate the firm conviction and commitment of my government to continue working with the US government and all other stakeholders in both countries further to strengthen the ties between India and the US," he added.

Taranjit Singh Sandhu, India's Ambassador to the US, accepted the award on behalf of US NSA PM Robert O'Brien at the White House on Monday. The honour was praised by Home Minister Amit Shah, who said, "This award is yet another fact of his acceptance as a world leader, working relentlessly toward global peace."

Welcoming the award, the MEA said the honour was to recognize Modi's "steadfast leadership and vision" for India's rise as a global power and his exemplary contribution to promoting the Indo-US strategic partnership and the surge of worldwide peace and prosperity.

Australian PM Scott Morrison and former PM Shinzo Abe of Japan were also awarded the Legion of Honor.
