Washington:Â Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to meet US President Barack Obama in a bilateral meeting in September. Modi has decided to go to the US for the UN General Assembly meeting and has agreed to have a bilateral meeting with Barack Obama.
The two sides are finalising the date for the meeting which will be held in the last week of September. Barack Obama had invited Modi to the US when he had called him to congratulate on his win in the Lok Sabha elections.
The meeting assumes importance as this will be the first time Modi will visit the US after he was denied a visa by the George Bush administration after the 2002 Gujarat riots under the controversial International Religious Freedom Act.
