Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Washington at the invitation of US President Donald Trump for a meeting at the White House on June 25-26.

This would be Modi’s first trip to the US under the Trump administration. The two leaders have spoken over phone for at least three times in the past.

Modi had earlier travelled to Washington three times and former US president Barack Obama had made a historic trip to India to be the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations in 2015.

Modi's visit to the US comes at a time when Trump made critical comments about India while announcing America's decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement.

Trump had accused India and other countries of trying to extract billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from the developed world to sign up for the climate accord.

According to reports, both the leaders will discuss bilateral ties, convergence of strategic interests in South Asia, joint effort in fighting terrorism, trade and specifically the vexed issue of H-1B temporary visa.

The United States has been a strong ally of India, with the country supporting India's Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) bid.
