Modi’s Visit To US Acts As A Big Push For NSG Bid

PM modi’s five-nation tour has come a full circle

1 min read

Modi, a person who was once denied US visa, has now become the taste of America. During the five-nation tour Modi visited Afghanistan, Qatar, The US and Mexico. The Prime Minister brought back a lot during his visit to the US. He got the got American CEOs to pledge $45 Billion in investments in India along with brining back back 200 stolen ancient idols and artefacts. He addressed the US India Business Council programme alongside Jeff Bezos of Amazon, John Chambers of Cisco.

The US now recognises India as a ‘major defence partner.’ While US Chief Protocol officer Peter Selfridges welcomed Modi at the White house, India got entry into Missile Technology. Also, India can now trade in sensitive defence technologies and has promised to join the Paris Climate Agreement by the end of the year.

Modi addressed the joint session of the US Congress to loud and repeated applauses. US Congress members vied to get Modi’s autograph after the Capitol Hill address. He also made veil pitch for isolation Pakistan until it stops harbouring terror attacks.

Another remarkable development that took place during the visit was that US backed India’s bid to enter the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). With hours to go before the crucial NSG meet that took place in Vienna, Mexico and Switzerland backed India’s bid.
