Selection of global CEOs who met Modi shows his govt's priorities

The Prime Minister's meeting with American CEOs from five different key areas is reflective of the priorities of his government.

While Shantanu Narayen reflects the IT and digital priority that the Indian government is pushing for, Modi's meeting with Vivek Lall is significant as General Atomics is not only the pioneer in military drone technologies but also the world's top manufacturer of state-of-the-art military drones, which the US shares only with its key allies and partners.

Stephen A Schwarzman is Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Blackstone, one of the world's leading investment firms investing capital on behalf of pension funds, large institutions and individuals.

The meeting with Qualcomm's Cristiano Amon assumes significance, given India's push for the 5G technology to be safe and secure.

PM's plane flies over Pakistan airspace en route to US

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's plane en route to the United States flew over the Pakistan airspace on Wednesday after the neighbouring country gave permission for the aircraft, sources told PTI.

There was no official confirmation from the government on whether the prime minister's aircraft flew over the Pakistan airspace, but sources confirmed that the route included Pakistan airspace.

According to flight-tracking website Flightradar24, the plane -- Boeing 777-337 (ER) — took off from the national capital at a little past 11.40 am and the route shows it flying over Pakistan and Iran, among other countries.

The sources said the permission came late from Pakistan authorities for the prime minister's plane to fly over its airspace. In case, permission was not given, there was an alternative plan for the prime minister and his entourage to make a stop at Frankfurt and then proceed to the US, they added.

In October 2019, Pakistan had denied India's request to use its airspace for Modi''s flight to Saudi Arabia. The same year in September also, Pakistan had denied overflight clearance for the prime minister's aircraft.

On Wedesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for mutual recognition of vaccine certificates to ease international travel amid several countries adopting different sets of rules to allow foreigners to enter their territory in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Modi made the remarks at the virtual Global COVID-19 summit for world leaders hosted by US president Joe Biden.

His address comes on a day when the UK government issued an updated international travel advisory to include AstraZeneca Covishield among the eligible COVID-19 vaccine formulations but kept India out of the 18 countries on an approved vaccinations list, requiring Indians to follow rules set out for "non-vaccinated" travellers.

"We also need to focus on addressing the pandemic’s economic effects. To that end, international travel should be made easier, through mutual recognition of vaccine certificates," Modi said.

The summit is being convened on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
