Modi-Obama summit in Washington in September

06modiAgencies, New Delhi
It is official now that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be going to Washington in September for a Summit meeting with US President Barrack Obama, but prior to that he would visit Bhutan and Japan. Mr Modi has chosen Bhutan for his first foreign visit which would take place later this month. He will be going to Japan in July.

‘’In fact the Prime Minister’s inbox relating foreign visits this year is very crowded,’’ Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said here confirming the reports of his visit to the three countries.

Replying to questions at a media briefing, Mr Akbaruddin said Mr Obama was among the earliest caller to Mr Modi when he was designated as prime minister, and during the conversation, he invited Mr Modi to visit the US.

However, he said no date had yet been fixed for the Summit, though a specific date from the US side had been received. Both sides were now in touch as to what could be the convenient date for the Prime Minister to be in Washington.
