WASHINGTON: The upcoming state visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the US at the invitation of President Joe Biden sends a message that the two countries are aligned geopolitically, economically and technologically, according to Mukesh Aghi, president of US India Strategic and Partnership Forum.
Prime Minister Modi will embark on his first state visit to the US at the invitation of President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in June. The US president and the First Lady will also host Modi at a state dinner on June 22.
“It sends a message (to the rest of the world) that India’s growth story is for real. India is a rising power. India will be a great power one day and the world has to take India much more seriously,” media reports, quoting Aghi, said on May 25.
“I think it sends a message that these two countries are aligned geopolitically, economically and technologically and we are moving in the same direction,” he said.
The US-India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF) is a top American India-centric strategic and business advocacy group.
