At Joint Base Andrews in Washington DC, Prime Minister Modi was greeted by a large crowd of American Indians, some chanting his name and waving the Indian flag amid light showers.
“Grateful to the Indian community in Washington DC for their warm welcome. Our diaspora is our strength. It is commendable how the Indian diaspora has distinguished itself across the world,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted as he shared the photos on Twitter.
Prime Minister Modi was received at the airport by senior officials of the Biden administration and Indian Ambassador to the United States Taranjit Singh Sandhu.
