The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in all likelihood will go on a tour of the United States Of America later in September and as per sources, he will likely meet Joe Biden and other world leaders.
There is no official confirmation from either the Indian Government or its American counterpart but, as the 76th session of the annual United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) approaches, Politicals pundits claim that PM Modi will certainly be visiting the US this September.
As per reports, PM Modi will visit both Washington DC as well as New York City during his visit. In Washington DC he will be meeting US President Joe Biden. This will be the first visit and the first in-person meeting of the two world leaders ever since Joe Biden was sworn in as the President of the United States in January this year.
The last time PM Modi visited the US was back in 2019 when Donald Trump invited him for the official visit and he addressed a massive diaspora event in Houston, titled ‘Howdy Modi’.
Modi and Biden will likely talk on issues pertaining to terrorism, global security, Climate change, India-US partnership in the Indo-Pacific region. Taliban and the situation in Afghanistan will also be a talking point as the US Military has now left the region leaving a power vacuum.
PM Modi’s name has been include in the provisional list of speakers at the 76th UNGA session which further assures his trip. Right now, India is a non-permanent member of the UN security council and its month-long presidency has just ended.
Modi will also attend the meeting of Quad leaders. Joe Biden and Australian PM Scott Morrison have already confirmed their presence at the meeting whereas the Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga, who is all set to resign from his office will skip the meet.
This is Modi’s second International tour ever since the pandemic struck the globe. He visited Bangladesh earlier this year to commemorate 50 years of Independence of the country.
