India’s national security adviser, Ajit Doval and foreign secretary, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar were also present at the meeting which was held at Modi’s official residence.
Details of the meeting were not known immediately.
McMaster is also expected to hold talks with Indian foreign minister, Sushma Swaraj.
He had earlier held talks with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani to strengthen bilateral ties and bring an end to ISIS and the Taliban to bring peace and stability in the region.
McMaster’s visit to Kabul and Islamabad is the first high-level visit by a Trump official and came just after the U.S. military dropped a GBU-43 Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, one of the largest conventional weapons ever used in combat, during an operation against Islamic State militants in eastern Afghanistan.
