India's foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla addressing a press conference said talks between India and US were held in five major categories - security, defence, energy, technology, people to people contact.
"The issue of CAA didn't come up. There was an appreciation from both side that pluralism and diversity are a common binding factor of both the countries," Shringla said while replying to question by reporters.
"I think the two leaders also decided to move towards what was referred to as a 'big deal' in the trade sector," India's foreign secretary informed.
"The two leaders decided that we would conclude the ongoing discussions as soon as possible and give it a legal framework & the text could be finalized with legal vetting as soon as possible," he added.
Shringla said both Trump and Modi had "useful & comprehensive discussion on trade" while adding that, "on security and defense there was an understanding that we have a strong strategic partnership, that is now referred to as comprehensive strategic global partnership."
"There was also discussion on the people-to-people aspects of the relationship. There is a vibrant community of Indian origin citizens in the United States that contributes both to the society & economy there," he said.
