PM Modi kicks off his 2-day tour of Silicon Valley by meeting Apple CEO Tim Cook
PM Modi started his two-day tour of the Silicon Valley with a tour of "green" car maker Tesla Motors Inc and meeting Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook later.

PM Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister after almost 30 years to visit the US West Coast. Notably, Chinese premier Xi Jinping met several tech leaders in Seattle earlier this week.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said during the meeting with PM Modi, "Apple has a unique relationship with India as its founder Steve Jobs went to India for inspiration."

The meeting between the Tim Cook and the PM took place at the letters hotel, on the first day of his visit.

"Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Prime Minister Modi discussed Tesla's developments in battery technology, energy storage, and renewable energy and the positive implications of this innovation for India," Tesla spokesman Ricardo Reyes said.

PM Modi was extended a warm welcome at the hotel lobby by members of the Indian community by raising pro-Modi slogans. The Prime Minister also interacted with members of the Indian community in San Jose, California.
