PM Modi to Visit US in June, Attend State Dinner Hosted by President Biden

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the United States of America on a state visit from June 21 to 24, following an invitation from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, the US government said in a statement on May 10. The US President and the First Lady will also host PM Modi for a state dinner on June 22.

“The upcoming visit will affirm the deep and close partnership between the United States and India and the warm bonds of family and friendship that link Americans and Indians together,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement while announcing the visit.

She said that Prime Minister Modi’s visit will strengthen two countries’ shared commitment to a free, open, prosperous, and secure Indo-Pacific and their shared resolve to elevate strategic technology partnership, including in defence, clean energy, and space.

“The leaders will discuss ways to further expand our educational exchanges and people-to-people ties, as well as our work together to confront common challenges from climate change to workforce development and health security,” she added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited US President Joe Biden at the White House in 2021 as part of the Quad summit bringing together the US, Australia, Japan and India. The forthcoming visit is his full state visit.
