Joe Biden to host PM Narendra Modi at White House
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Joe Biden will hold their first bilateral meeting on Friday (Sept 24), ahead of the first ever in-person summit of leaders of the Quad at the White House in Washington DC on the same day.
Narendra Modi will then leave for New York where he will address the UN General Assembly on Saturday (Sept 25) as the first speaker of the day.
Modi is expected to participate in the first in-person Quad – India, US, Australia and Japan – leaders’ summit in Washington on September 24 being hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden at the White House. Apart from addressing the crisis unfolding in Afghanistan, the two sides will also be working on an ambitious agenda concerning the Indo-Pacific region.
“The leaders will be focused on strengthening the deep ties between their people and shared democratic values that have underpinned the special bond between the United States and India for more than seven decades,” a White House official said.
The official noted that the relationship between the United States and India goes so much deeper than just a government-to-government relationship.
