India clears accord on intellectual property rights with US

US has long urged India to strengthen protection for intellectual property and that has been a cause of friction on top of trade disputes between the two countries

India's cabinet on Wednesday approved a plan to sign an initial pact on intellectual property rights with the United States, a government minister said, days ahead of a visit by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said approval for an MoU with the United States was secured at a cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
