5 June 2014; Washington D.C.: Today, the US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) greeted with great joy the announcement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the United States, which is in quick succession to his inauguration on May 26, 2014 as the fifteenth Prime Minister of India.
The Prime Minister’s visit has been confirmed to take place in the last week of September 2014 with the exact itinerary still under discussion. The visit is being billed as a full blown bilateral dialogue with President Obama in Washington, DC rather than a meeting on the side line of the United Nations General Assembly Session in New York City.
USINPAC Chairman Sanjay Puri, commented: “We are thrilled about PM Modi’s first visit to the United States as a Head of State. We remain optimistic about the prospect of jump-starting bilateral dialogue on a number of issues that are of mutual concern to the two nations.”
