PM Modi is scheduled to meet President Obama at the White House on June 7 and address a joint meeting of the US Congress on June 8.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming visit to the American capital will highlight the “deepening of the US-India relationship”, the White House has said.
“The visit will highlight the deepening of the US-India relationship in key areas since the President’s visit to New Delhi in January 2015,” White House Deputy Press Secretary, Jennifer Friedman, told reporters aboard Air Force One while travelling with US President Barack Obama to Miami, Florida.
“Among the issues that the President looks forward to discussing are progress made on climate change and clean
energy partnership, security and defence cooperation, and economic growth priorities,” Friedman said.
