Why Modi’s US Visit Is Important For India?

Prime Minister Modi left for a multi nation visit a couple of days back. This time, he will also be visiting United States of America, and it is believed to be his last visit to U.S. during the tenure of President Obama.

But, is this trip important for India? Or, is it just the ‘personal friendship’ between the two world leaders? Here are the answers:

  • It is the fourth U.S. visit of Modi since he joined as the PM of India. Last visit happened in April this year, when he attended the Nuclear Security Summit. The Indian prime minister and the U.S. president will be attending a bilateral meeting on Tuesday, in which, India’s entry into the NSG, the Nuclear Supplier Group will likely be discussed.
  • Modi has been invited to address a joint session of US Congress. To do so, Modi is the fifth Indian prime minister. Before him, Rajiv Gandhi, Narsimha Rao, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Man Mohan Singh have addressed the joint session of US Congress.
  • Modi wants a final decision on some important policies related to Make In India and other campaigns, before Obama leaves the White House.
  • Meet with the members of Republican and Democratic parties before the prudential elections.
  • Finalizing the intelligence sharing talks between the two countries will also be a point of dialogue.
