Trump's India visit: PM Modi promises memorable welcome
New Delhi, Feb 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday promised a "memorable welcome" for US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania, who are scheduled to visit later this month.
"India will accord a memorable welcome to our esteemed guests. This visit is a very special one and it will go a long way in further cementing India-USA friendship," PM Modi tweeted.
"India and USA share a common commitment to democracy and pluralism. Our nations are cooperating extensively on a wide range of issues. Robust friendship between our nations augurs well not only for our citizens but also for the entire world," posted the Prime Minister.
