Austin III, right, Commander of the US Central Command (CentCom), before the start of a briefing at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla.

In this Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014 file photo, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, right, shakes hand with Chinese President Xi Jinping as he welcomes him at a hotel in Ahmadabad, India.
