Modi Is Expected To Lay Out His Vision of Securing Nuclear Weapons
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the US to attend the two-day Nuclear Security Summit along with world leaders from over 50 countries. This is the PM’s third visit to the US, including his second trip to Washington DC after becoming Prime Minister in 2014.
Modi will be attending a dinner event, hosted by US President Barack Obama at the White House, in honor of the world leaders attending the fourth Nuclear Security Summit. The official summit engagement will be followed by three plenary sessions on Friday, where India and other participating nations will submit their national nuclear progress reports.
The Summit will primarily focus on the crucial issue of nuclear security and the threats caused by nuclear terrorism. The discussions will include the necessary measures to strengthen the global nuclear security architecture and the accessibility of nuclear material to non-state actors.
Last year in June, USINPAC organized a Congressional Briefing on US-India Nuclear Trade to address the opportunities and challenges in commencing US-India Nuclear Trade. The speakers included Ed Royce, chairman of the congressional Foreign Affairs Committee, Ted Jones, Director, Supplier International Affairs, NEI, Congressmen Ted Poe and Joe Crowley and other political visionaries.
Back In 2014, USINPAC was a welcoming partner for the Indian Prime Minister’s visit at Madison Square Garden, New York and SAP Center, San Jose in 2015. USINPAC organized several other community receptions in honor of the PM’s visit, which witnessed a stellar turn-out.
USINPAC Chairman, Sanjay Puri, said: “We are thrilled about PM Modi’s third visit to the United States. It is truly a beginning of a new era for the two nations to come together and strengthen their ties. 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.”
