Washington: The White House is in talks with Indian officials on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's proposed visit to the US, a presidential spokesman said today after House of Representative Speaker Paul Ryan announced that Modi has been invited to address a joint meeting of the Congress on June 8.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, however, did not indicate if a final decision has been taken in this regard or if the formal invitation to Modi by President Barack Obama has been sent.

Obama, he said, "enjoys his relationship" with Modi.

"The President appreciate the important role played by Prime Minister Modi in the success of Paris Summit on Climate Change last November," he said.
