The Prime Minister’s tour will kick up on June 21 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, where he will preside over festivities commemorating International Day of Yoga.


The two leaders will continue their high-level engagement in Washington, D.C., where the prime minister will be given a ceremonial welcome at the White House on June 22.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) has announced that the same evening, President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden would host a State Dinner in honour of the Prime Minister.

On June 22, Prime Minister Modi will address a Joint Sitting of the US Congress at the request of US Congressional Leaders, including Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy and Speaker of the Senate Charles Schumer.
