Trump and Modi will hold extensive talks on February 25 on a range of issues, including defence and trade, he said.

Modi will host a lunch for Trump, while President Ram Nath Kovind will host a banquet in honour of the visiting dignitary, he said.

Sources said India and US do not want to rush in finalising a trade deal and both sides will take a decision on it considering a long-term view.

Some defence deals may fructify during Trump's visit, the sources said.
