US To Host Modi Later This Month
Washington: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be hosted by the US in Washington later this month. The State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told media,” We look forward to having Indian Prime Minister here in Washington- I believe it’s later this month.”
Modi would be travelling to Washington at the invitation of US President Donald Trump for a meeting at the White House later this month. However, the actual dates of the meeting are yet to be announced.
It would be Modi’s first trip to the US under the Trump regime. The two leaders are said to have spoken over the phone for at least three times.
Modi visited the US during previous Obama Administration and had a record number of eight meetings with Barack Obama. While Modi visited Washington three times, Obama made a historic trip to India as chief guest at the Republic Day celebration in 2015.
