Modi likely to meet Obama in September
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to fly to the United States, most likely in September, on an invitation by US President Barack Obama
Two newspapers reported the development, citing government sources.
The US President had invited Modi to visit the US after he called him to congratulate him on the NDA’s win in the Lok Sabha elections.
Modi was earlier denied visa to the United States by the George Bush administration after the 2002 riots as Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Modi is likely to be in New York to attend the UN General Assembly in September. He will then hold a bilateral meeting with Obama.
The bilateral meeting between the two leaders has been tentatively fixed between September 25 and 30, government sources said.
However, neither the Prime Minister’s Office nor the US embassy have confirmed the meeting yet.
