PM To Visit U.S. From Sept. 21-27; Will Meet Trump, Address UNGA Session


Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the United States from Sept. 21 to 27, during which he will meet President Donald Trump and address the annual United Nations General Assembly session, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said.

Modi is scheduled to arrive in Houston on Saturday. A day later, Trump would join him in addressing the mega 'Howdy Modi' rally, to be attended by the members of the Indian-American community.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi will make a visit to the U.S. from the late afternoon of Sept. 21 until the forenoon of Sept. 27. And the two cities on his itinerary are Houston in Texas and then New York," Gokhale said.

The prime minister will address the UN General Assembly session on the morning of Sept. 27, he said.

As the world commemorates Mahatma Gandhi's 150th birth anniversary, Modi will also host a special event 'Leadership Matters: Relevance of Gandhi in the Contemporary World' on Sept. 24. He will be joined leaders of a few countries at this event.
