Modi invited to address US Congress

Observer Report

Washington—United States House Speaker Paul Ryan has invited Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address a joint session of Congress in June, CNN reported. It is unclear whether Modi has accepted the invitation as yet.
The invitation is a sharp turnaround for a leader who was once barred from the US over massacres of Muslims.
In a statement on Thursday, Ryan called the US-India relationship “a pillar of stability in an important region of the world”.
