PM Modi addresses US Congress: As it happened
Washingon: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the joint session of the US Congress on Wednesday. He became the fifth Indian PM to do so.
PM Modi arrived here on Monday from Switzerland on his second bilateral visit to the US after his trip in September, 2014. This is PM Modi's fourth visit to the US since he assumed office in May 2014.
The PM is visiting US at the invitation of Obama, who in the last year of his presidency is inviting a few world leaders with whom he shared a 'close and productive working relationship'.
Then there came a time when US-India made an effort made an effort to come closer, what we could do for each other. Now we are entering an era where we aren't working for each other, but we think about what India and the US can do for the world. Be it climate change issue, poverty, terrorism, health sector issues of the world, we can put our heads together and work for the world, says PM Modi.
