Underlining the contribution of the Indian talent to the US economy and society, the Prime Minister asked the United States to develop reflective, balanced and farsighted perspective on movement of skilled professionals, statement from the Prime Minister's Office said. 
"The Prime Minister shared his perspective on areas where both countries can work even more closely, including in facilitating greater people to people linkages that have over the years helped in contributing to each other's prosperity, it said. 
India, in January, had expressed its concern over bill to change rules on 1B visas that will impact the IT industry and Indian techies working in America.

"In this regard, he recognised Congress's strong bipartisan support for the India US partnership, the statement added.
