Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared his program to visit the US as a response to President Biden’s invitation. The PM is scheduled to remain in the country from 22-25 September.
“During my visit, I will review the India-U.S. Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with President Biden and exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest. I am also looking forward to meeting Vice President Kamala Harris to explore opportunities for cooperation between our two nations particularly in the area of science and technology,” says the PM.
PM Modi is also expected to participate in Quad Leader’s Summit along with President Biden, Scott Morrison the Prime Minister of Australia, and Yoshihide Suga the Prime Minister of Japan.
