New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, before leaving for the US this morning, called his visit an “occasion to strengthen strategic partnership with the US and consolidate ties with Japan and Australia.”

On his three-day visit, the Prime Minister will participate in the first in person summit of Quad Leaders, address the United Nations General Assembly and also have his first bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden since his election.

PM Modi said his UN General Assembly address would focus on “pressing global challenges” including the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to combat terrorism and climate change.

“During my visit, I will review the India-US Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with President Biden and exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest,” PM Modi said in his statement.

He also referred to his first meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris and said he was “looking forward” to the meeting to explore opportunities for cooperation, particularly in the area of science and technology.

On the first in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit, PM Modi said his meeting with President Biden, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan would provide an opportunity to take stock of the outcomes of a virtual summit in March and “identify priorities for future engagements based on our shared vision for the Indo-Pacific region”.

“I will also meet Prime Minister Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Suga of Japan to take stock of the strong bilateral relations with their respective countries and continue our useful exchanges on regional and global issues. My visit to the US would be an occasion to strengthen the Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with USA, consolidate relations with our strategic partners- Japan and Australia – and to take forward our collaboration on important global issues,” he said.
