PM Narendra Modi to address nation from United States at 11 am today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the International Economic Forum earlier this month.

Just hours before Modi landed in Washington, Trump tweeted from his official Twitter handle POTUS, an acronym for President of the United States, that he is looking forward to welcome the Indian leader to the White House, during which he will discus "important strategic issues" with a "true friend".

Addressing the business leaders, PM Modi said that there have been 7,000 reforms alone by the government of India for the ease of business with other countries. The Trump administration has said that if the Indian side raises the contentious H-1B visa issue during President Trump's meeting with Modi, the Americans were ready to respond.

Indian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar flew into Washington ahead of Modi's visit to meet senior officials in the Trump administration and to lay the groundwork for the Modi-Trump meeting. Modi also has his task cut out for attracting USA manufacturing jobs to India - illustrated by Apple's exertions to make iPhones in India - at a time when the Trump administration's emphasis is to keep jobs in the U.S. and grow them as part of its America First initiative.

The two leaders will not address a press conference but will issue individual press statements.
