White House explains why India’s Republic Day Parade will not be included in Trump
India invites world leaders to every Republic Day celebration every year. In 2015, US President Barack Obama joined as the chief guest. As a US president, he was his second visit. This year, ten ASEAN leaders participated in the Republic Day celebrations.
WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump will not be able to participate as the Chief Guest of Republic Day Parade of India next year due to his busy schedules. Prime Minister Narendra Mamedi had invited Trump to come to India during the talks in Washington last year. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in July that Trump has been invited to come to India but no decision has been taken yet.
When asked about the decision of Trump on Modi’s invitation, the White House spokesman said, “President Trump is honored with the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be invited as the Chief Guest of the Republic Day Parade on January 26, 2019. But they are unable to participate because of pre-scheduled programs. “
It is being said that when India celebrates Republic Day, Trump can address both the Houses of the American Congress under the annual State of Union (SOTU) address. This is usually the last week of January or the first week of February.
The spokesman said that there is a personal close relationship between the US President and Modi and Trump is committed to strengthening the Indo-US relationship. The spokesperson said, “Through two meetings of the President and many times on the phone, the personal closure of Prime Minister Modi is committed and he is committed to strengthening the US-India diplomatic partnership.” Again, we expect to meet Prime Minister Modi. “
Modi and Trump have a program to participate in the G20 Summit in Argentina on November 30 and December 1. There is a possibility of meeting both leaders and discussing bilateral relations. India invites world leaders to every Republic Day celebration every year. In 2015, US President Barack Obama joined as the chief guest. As a US president, he was his second visit.
