Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in New York on the second leg of his US visit early on Monday after a hugely successful Houston tour with the Howdy Modi event.
PM Modi is in New York to attend the United Nations Secretary-General’s summit on Climate Change and Leaders’ Dialogue on ‘Strategic Responses to Terrorist and Violent Extremist Narratives’.
“Lending India’s voice to the global discourse PM @narendramodi arrives in #NYC for #UNGA74. PM will be participating in sessions on Climate Change, SDG, and universal health among others and will meet India’s various regional/multilateral partners,” the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.
At the Climate Action Summit, PM Modi will highlight India’s robust action to address climate change in line with global goals and our international commitments.
PM Modi is slated to hold around 20 bilateral meetings during his New York visit including with President Trump.
US President Donald Trump is expected to hold talks with PM Modi on Tuesday in New York on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.
Meanwhile, during his speech at the UNGA on September 27, the PM will focus on India’s role towards development and peace and security, with no mention of Article 370 which is an “internal issue”.
The Prime Minister had addressed the Howdy Modi event, attended by 50,000-strong Indian-American audience, along with US President Donald Trump on Sunday.
