The meeting, which took place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, came four days after the US agreed to ease export restrictions, including removal of ISRO from a prohibitive list, and move ahead on the Next Steps in Strategic Partnership (NSSP).

The groundwork for the summit-level meeting was laid both in New Delhi and Washington at the recent interaction on NSSP, which concluded Phase One of the partnership talks and prepared the ground for further progress.
