On June 22, 2023, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a joint session of Congress and attend a State Dinner at the White House.   

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement highlighting the importance of further strengthening U.S.-India relations.  

“As we extend a warm welcome to Prime Minister Modi, it is crucial that the Biden Administration, and the U.S. Congress, prioritize this incredibly important relationship. Our nations’ economic and security interests overlap on many of the most pressing issues, especially the growing hostility of the Chinese Communist Party in the Himalayas and in the Indian Ocean. We find ourselves at a new juncture in global history in which both India and the United States can further strengthen this vital partnership and build upon the foundation of our shared democratic values and national interests.” – Senator Rubio
