PM Modi likely to visit US this month, meet Joe Biden: Reports

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to travel to Washington DC and New York in the last week of September, according to reports. This will be the PM’s first visit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to travel to Washington DC and New York in the last week of September, according to reports.

This will be the PM’s first visit to the United States since President Joe Biden assumed office early this year and will be the first in-person meeting between the two nation leaders. The two have met virtually on several occasions, including the G-7 summit in June this year.

Besides meeting Biden, he is expected to have important meetings with the top echelons of the US administration.

According to the tentative plan, the expected dates for PM Modi’s visit to the US that are being worked out are September 23-24.

After Washington, PM Modi will visit New York to attend the annual high-level United Nations General Assembly session.

India is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council and its month-long presidency has just ended. It is learnt that UNGA will be in a hybrid format this year.

PM Modi last visited the US in September 2019, during which, he and then President Donald Trump addressed a huge diaspora at the ‘Howdy Modi’ event in Houston.
