The PM, who is visiting the US for the seventh time since assuming office in 2014, said that the visit is an "occasion to strengthen our strategic partnership with the US and consolidate ties with Japan and Australia".

All of Modi’s previous visits had his signature massive meetings with the Indian-American community in particular the one at the Madison Square Garden in 2015, and thereafter the last one was Houston in 2019. However, because of COVID-19 restrictions, no large event for the prime minister is being planned. Image Courtesy: @MEAIndia/Twitter
Upon his arrival at the airport, he was received by US Department of State officials including T H Brian McKeon, US Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources at Joint Base Andrews in Washington DC. Prime Minister Modi has a packed agenda over the next three days. President Biden will host Modi at the White House for their first bilateral meeting on 24 September. Later on that day, Biden will host the first-ever in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit with Modi, Japanese prime minister Yoshihide Suga and Australian prime minister Scott Morrison.
