Washington. US President Joe Biden believes that India plays an important role in every aspect of global politics and there can be no better partner than this. This statement by a senior Biden administration official gives an opportunity to know the administration’s reasons behind inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on an official visit. Prime Minister Modi is scheduled to visit the US on a state visit at the invitation of US President Joe Biden and his wife and First Lady Jill Biden.
He will be on a US visit from June 21 to 24. President Biden and his wife will host a dinner on June 22 in honor of Modi. Modi, 72, who has made more than half a dozen visits to the US since becoming prime minister in 2014, has now been invited for the first official state visit. This honor is given only to America’s close friendly countries. A senior Biden administration official told ‘PTI-Bhasha’ on Monday, “The President believes that his relations with India are much more advanced than America’s bilateral relations with any country in the world.” I also think he fully recognizes that when we look at the 21st century and if you want to partner in these challenging times, there is no better partner than India.
Modi is the third Indian Prime Minister to be invited on a state visit by the US. Moreover, Modi is the third foreign leader to have been invited by President Biden and this clearly shows the importance Biden attaches to Indo-US relations and friendship with Modi. The official said on condition of anonymity that there was a lot of deliberation within the administration before taking the decision to invite Prime Minister Modi on the official visit.
The senior official said, “You can imagine that there are a lot of criteria for this decision. It is a very tough contest, I think the reality is that India plays an important role in every aspect of global politics. Know PM Modi better because of working closely during many meetings.
It was formed in 2017 to stop China’s aggressive behavior in the Indo-Pacific region. Prime Minister Modi will be visiting the US from June 21 to 24 at the invitation of US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden. During this, he will also address the joint session of the Congress, which is being considered as a big occasion. Prime Minister Modi had earlier addressed the US lawmakers in 2016. Modi’s visit comes ahead of the G-20 summit to be hosted by India in September.
He has traveled to the US more than half a dozen times for bilateral and multilateral meetings since becoming the Prime Minister in 2014 and has held meetings with all the three former US Presidents Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden. But now, for the first time, he has been invited for an official state visit, an honor accorded only to America’s closest allies. Modi had earlier visited Washington in September 2021. He went to Biden’s invitation for a bilateral meeting. He then made a live appearance for the first time at the Quad summit hosted by Biden.
