PM Modi will be invited to address joint meeting of US Congress, Congressman Ro Khanna expresses confidence

Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna has expressed confidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be invited to address a joint meeting of the US Congress by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

On June 22, PM Modi has been invited by President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden for an Official State Visit.

In his capacity as Co-Chair of the Congressional India Caucus, Khanna wrote to McCarthy on Tuesday urging him to invite Modi to address a joint session of the US Congress.

After a meeting with McCarthy on Wednesday, Khanna said that he is very confident that the Speaker would extend an invitation to Modi to address the joint session. Though the dates of the address have not been finalised yet.

The purpose of a Joint Meeting has usually been for Congress to hear an address from an important figure — generally a visiting foreign leader.

Earlier on 27 April, 2023, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, who visited the US last month to commemorate 70 years of the US-South Korea bilateral defence treaty, addressed a Joint Meeting of the Congress.

As per details, The US president and the First Lady will also host Modi at a state dinner on June 22.
